Eyes feel soft
When I press on my eyes when there closed it feels really soft and squishy ,it feels like my finger is sinking into my eye ,it feels like this on the front part (cornea) and on the sides (sclera) ,is this normal? I'm pretty sure my eyes felt a lot more firmer in the past

This is natural, especially if your vision has drastically changed or if you haven't had eye surgery or are on drops to lower your eye pressure.

Now, quit pressing on your eyes unless told to do so by your Ophthalmologist.
