In brief: Avoid pressure

Putting pressure on the ye ball is not a good for the eye.
It can cause nerve damage.

In brief: No

However, there is a theoretical risk that if there is underlying glaucoma, and pressing the eye at night could lead to constant increase in eye pressure, then injury is possible.
