Do I still have pink eye if I have only red eyes I had pink eye for one day and now all I have is red eye and no symptoms does that mean that I don't have pink eye any more?
Depends on the cause. There are many causes of redness of the eyes. Several types of inflammatory conditions, allergic reactions, detergents, chemicals, and sometimes bacterial, viral or fungal infections can cause redness of the eyes. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.
The . The term "pink eye" is used to describe a vriral conjunctivitis. It will appear mildly red or pink for 1 to 2 weeks. It is a contagious infection. The symptoms are mild, redness, tearing, itching, mild blurry vision. If you were told that you have a pink eye by an ophthalmologist then it will last another week or two. Avoid touching your eye and wash your hands frequently.

If your vision is good, no pain or discharge, no light sensitivity, then you don't need to worry too much. If your symptoms worsen, and/or it spreads to the other eye, then you more likely have true pink eye, which is viral, and takes longer to resolve. Most patients also have cold symptoms and/or a sore throat if it is viral. Either way, wash your hands often!

Most cold viruses stay in the throat but a few can travel up that tube into the eye and cause a pink infection (conjunctivitis). So it is uncommon but not rare for these to occur simultaneously.
