In brief: Anything's possible
Giant papillary conjnctivitis is usually a chronic response to an allergen or foreign body (like contact lenses).
Since it usually takes weeks or longer to develop, it usually takes at least several weeks to decrease. It can go away quicker with medicated eye drops, but will return if the eye is again exposed to the allergen (or contact lens).
