Pressure on the cornea

When pressure is applied onto the cornea wether it's from rubbing the eye a bit too hard with the knuckles or weathers its from a poke in the eye ,could the pressure force the aqueous humour onto the iris mainly on the outsides of the iris were the cornea ,aqueous humour and the iris are closer together ,could it result a change in iris color (darker or lighter discolouration)?
