Giant papillary conjunctivitis is a common condition in which large bumps form under an individuals eyelid. It is an allergic response that is most common in soft contact lenses that have a longer planned replacement time frame. The residual proteins on the lens incite the allergic reaction, which can lead to irritation and excess movement with contact lens wear. The prevalence of GPC has decreased since disposable contact lenses have become popular. In addition to prescribing medications and/or discontinuing contact lens wear an eye doctor may switch someone with mild to moderate GPC to daily disposable contact lenses as a viable option.
