It dilates and contracts to control the diameter of the hole that the light passes through, to let in more or less light. It is controlled by the f-stop setting (F1.8 is big/fast F16 is small/slow). The larger the aperture, the better it will perform in low light. Large aperture = shallow depth of field, small aperture = greater depth of field.
