Children and young adults commonly get warts. An infected mother can sometimes pass the virus to her newborn during vaginal delivery. The papilloma is usually painless and rarely causes any visual problems due to irritation. Those with a history of warts on other parts of the body are at increased risk for conjunctival papillomas. Limbal papillomas are more often seen in adults. Malignant transformation of conjunctival papillomas is very rare.
