1 doctor agrees
In brief: Yes
You can induce astigmatism of the cornea which can cause double vision by pressing on the eye or eyelid.
You can also stimulate retinal cells which will leave a scotoma or after image by pressing on the more posterior aspects of the eye.

In brief: Double
If you push hard enough on your eyelid, the eyes will not line up together, resulting in double vision.
Your brain is trying to line up a picture from each eye, and if you upset that balance, you will see two of everything. Do not do this when driving.
