Seems unlikely if you were protected the entire time. At the very least you could have gotten some sort of infection in your eye as those symptoms do not sound typical of an initial HIV infection. Don't worry so much! I would recommend going ahead and getting tests for HIV and other std's JUST to be safe (it's a good idea for EVERYONE to be tested just to be safe.) Don't sweat it, get your bases covered, and realize how unlikely it is if you properly protected yourself.
