Exercising And Eye Pressure
It is known to occur: Pressure can be felt in or around the eye but the actual eye pressure (every eye has pressure, like the inflation pressure of a tire) may be normal.

Glaucoma: For the eye to function, a balance must exist between the aqueous fluid secreted by the ciliary body, and the outflow of fluid by way of the trabecular meshwork. If too much fluid is produced or too little drains out, the intraocular pressure increases, since after infancy, the eyeball cannot expand like a balloon. Untreated elevated eye pressure damages the optic nerve possibly causing blindness. ...Read more
It has a wide range: Best to know what your normal range is upon measurement at the eye doctor, and that your optic nerve is looking healthy. That's a better indicator.
