In brief: Yes
If the pain is from the iris, and you constrict one iris, then the consensual response based on the nerves is for the other iris to constrict also and thus you can get pain in both eyes.

In brief: Yes
This effect is most commonly seen with iritis and bright lights.
Patients experience photophobia or sensitivity to bright lights and the pain appears to occur in both eyes. This is due to the fact that the pupils constrict together regardless of the source of the light and cause the sensation of pain in both eyes.
