Fluid Behind Eyes Causes
Negative pressure : In order for the ear to work properly air from the outside of the ear drum has to be balanced by air on the inside of the eardrum. In an intact ear drum the only way for air to get into the middle ear space is up the eustachian tube. If the eustachian tube doesn't work well the air inside the middle ear gets used up creating a negative pressure. Eventually this pressure can become so low that fluid is sucked from the lining of the middle ear space. ...Read more

Yes, rarely: There are many types of glaucoma, some of which are due to elevation of eye pressure. When the eye is compressed, the pressure increases and there can be damage to the optic nerve. This can be a result of trauma causing a hemorrhage in the orbit, tumors compressing on the eye, and even pressure from sleeping on one's eye. Most often, the pressure build up in glaucoma is due to internal factors. ...Read more
