In brief: No

As long as they don't rub your eyes while you sleep these are fine.

In brief: It depends

If they are snug enough not to move over the eyes, but not too tight as to put pressure on them, covers may be fine.
But any product that pushes on the eyes can increase eye pressure, and if the pressure is too great, can lead to problems down the road. You may want to ask an eye doctor about your particular cover.
