The tissue is richly invested with Langerhans cells, other dendritic cells, and macrophages that serve as potential antigen-presenting cells (APCs). Conjunctival follicles that enlarge after certain types of ocular surface infection or inflammation represent collections of T lymphocytes, B lymphocytes, and APCs. Observation of the function of similar sites, such as Peyer patches of the intestine, suggests that follicles might represent a site for localized immune processing of antigens that permeate through the thin overlying epithelium to be processed by T lymphocytes and B lymphocytes locally within the follicle.
