In brief: No. Many causes

Iris color is a function of the amount of pigment, blood and nerve supply.
Trauma and inflammation, injury and surgery and diseases that damage or diminish nerve supply can cause iris color to change. Pink irises are a function of the lack of pigment an are abnormal and indicate a disease, trauma or genetic problem.
