Summary In recent years the importance of antigen-presenting cells and their influence on the eyes has been elucidated. We have learned that nearly every structure of the eye harbors these cells, yet they differ in their activities and thus in the ways in which they protect against - or participate in - diseases of the eye. Antigen-Presenting Cells and the Eye summarizes current knowledge about ACPs in general, and their role in the eye, in particular
