Is it normal to feel intense pressure on your eye when you blow your nose?

In brief: Pressure

Yes-- the nasal passages, sinuses, and eyes are in close proximity.
Blowing your nose hard, especially if congested, can transmit pressure to the eye and the orbit.

In brief: No usually

One may feel a mild pressure as one blows that nose as the pressure can be reflected in the eye.
Some people have a wide naso lacrimal canal and the pressure can be transmitted and felt i the eye a lot more.
