Yes: Pink eye is just an eye that is pink for any reason. Pink eye could be an infection, in which case there is often pus. (this kind is contagious.) it may be allergy in which case it is usually itchy. (not contagious) it may be trauma in which case there is often pain. It may be irritation in which case there may be pus, itching and/or pain.
