In brief: Acanthamoeba
Hot tubs and fresh water pools and lakes also harbor a weird bug called acanthamoeba that can cause severe corneal ulcers especially in contact lens wearers.

In brief: Yes
Hot tubs are the perfect "broth" for bacteria especially if the bromine levels are not high enough; easy to get infection, especially staph.

In brief: Yes
An amazing array of pathogens lurk in the warm, moist environment of a hot tub.
That is why we recommend patient do not do this soon after eye surgery.
