Accommodating change

And what does an analysis of the dynamics and constants of EU law and integration tell us about the nature, direction, potential and pitfalls of EU law?

They were obscured by other gizmos that had been added, piled onto the steering column and dashboard.

Arguably, it may increase the depth of field by reducing the aperture of the eye, and thus reduce the amount of accommodation needed to bring the image in focus on the retina.

The combination of these three movements (accommodation, convergence and miosis) is under the control of the Edinger-Westphal nucleus and is referred to as the near triad, or accommodation reflex.

While it is well understood that proper convergence is necessary to prevent diplopia, the functional role of the pupillary constriction remains less clear.

Fish and amphibians vary the power by changing the distance between a rigid lens and the retina with muscles.

This dramatic change in focal power of the eye of approximately 15 dioptres (the reciprocal of focal length in metres) occurs as a consequence of a reduction in zonular tension induced by ciliary muscle contraction.

This self-assessment considers the two consecutive research programmes designed to address parts of these interrelated challenges.

The new programme – the second to be assessed – started as of January 2015, and is entitled .

This process can occur in as little as 350 milliseconds. By the fifth decade of life the accommodative amplitude can decline so that the near point of the eye is more remote than the reading distance. Once presbyopia occurs, those who are emmetropic (do not require optical correction for distance vision) will need an optical aid for near vision; those who are myopic (nearsighted and require an optical correction for distance vision), will find that they see better at near without their distance correction; and those who are hyperopic (farsighted) will find that they may need a correction for both distance and near vision.

Note that these effects are most noticeable when the pupil is large; i.e. The age-related decline in accommodation occurs almost universally to less than 2 dioptres by the time a person reaches 45 to 50 years, by which time most of the population will have noticed a decrease in their ability to focus on close objects and hence require glasses for reading or bifocal lenses.

Effective leaders then take innovation seriously and let it impact the way their organization functions.
