I hope so...: Wow...Acanthamoeba keratitis is an extremely serious, eye-threatening disease that, if left untreated, will destroy your cornea and likely leave you blind. If you or anyone you know has this, i would work closely with an eye md (ophthalmologist) and obstetrician asap to work out a way that it can be treated, so that the benefits for the eye outweigh the risks to the baby.
