is it possible to have eye impetigo?

Eyelid infection: Since impetigo is an infection of the skin and there is skin on the eyelids, technically impetigo can occur there.

Yes: If you mean of the eyelids. This is sometimes associated with harada's disease. If you mean of the internal pigmented structures like the iris, then this could be a sign of albinism. See your eye doctor.
