In brief: Medium

Can be common in contact lens wear otherwise, may happen with allergic or vernal keratoconjunctivitis.

In brief: Quite common

In areas with high environmental allergic potential - chronic allergies and vernal conjunctivitis produce giant papules without contact lens use.
Of course, most cases are contact lens related and often improve with antihistamines and hydrogen peroxide disinfection regimens.
