Would it be okay for me to use old pinkeye eye drops?

In brief: No

Drops sitting in your cabinet start to go bad within 30 days of opening them. What is the medication? If the pink eye is viral, then an antibiotic won't treat it.
If it was artificial tears for comfort, then probably ok, but you could potentially infect yourself with a dormant virus.
