In brief: May be related

Viral infections can occur simultaneously in the throat, nasal passages and eyes as the virus is a mucus membrane inhabitant.
More commonly each system is infected by itself but they can occur together, so you might have sore throat and coughing with this. The eye infection, however, did not cause the throat infection.
