In brief: No
Contacts can cause problems with the eye surface such as allergies to contact cleaning solutions, infections, poor oxygen supply to the cornea, but do not affect the intraocular structures.
Eye pressure is determined by the rate at which the aqueous fluid is made within the eye and resorbed through a structure called the trabecular meshwork (also within the eye).
