What is Giant Papillary Conjunctivitis (GPC)?

Giant Papillary Conjunctivitis is an eye condition in which the inner layer of the eyelid becomes inflamed. This can lead to redness, itching, tearing, and a gritty feeling in your eyes. It usually occurs when contact lenses are worn for extended periods or if they are not cleaned and stored properly. Other signs of this include:

  • Uncontrollable blinking
  • Excessive mucus production
