The goal of this symposium was to coalesce information presented by 22 investigators in the field of corneal and ocular surface inflammation into common pathways of inflammation. The perspective elucidated in this article defines the components of the normal ocular surface immune architecture and describes the consensus reached on the mechanisms/pathways involved in 1) acute inflammation; 2) late-stage (chronic) response; and 3) allergic disease. Seven diagrams didactically illustrate mechanisms. This paper is the introductory article in a supplement containing 18 articles by the symposium participants.
