    If your eye pressure are less than 8 mm Hg, you may suffer low eye pressures. But there are people that with low eye pressure but perfectly fine without visual symptoms. The lower eye pressure like a ball that is low on air where part of the ball can begin to collapse. Anyway if you have low eye pressure, you'd better talk it to eye doctor and get eye checked to see if there any problems to to your eyes.
