This is a very normal phenomenon that many people notice when they apply pressure to the eye. There are fluids in and around the eye that occupy space in and around the eye. When pressure is applied to the eyeball or the tissues around the eye (called the orbit), then this fluid shifts and in some persons an audible squish is heard which represents the shifting fluid. Certainly not everyone experiences this because we all have different shaped eyes and/or orbits.
