In brief: usually not

Elevated intra-ocular pressure usually causes no symptoms on its own.
The results oif long-standing elevation of intra-ocular pressure can be peripheral visual loss. Extreme elevation of intra-ocular pressure as in acute angle closure glaucoma often causes eye pain, nausea, vomiting and blurred vision.

In brief: Usually not

Like blood pressure, it is difficult to feel any change unless it is at the extremes.
Extreme high eye pressure is an emergency and results in loss of vision, pain, and even nausea. Having it measured with your doctor is the best way to catch the problem early and have it monitored. Most patients will not feel any different if they have elevated eye pressure that requires treatment.
