This could be a sign of trauma related to the topic you are discussing.
A subconscious closing of the eye in an attempt to block a memory or access a memory that has tried to be forgotten or a memory that would rather be forgotten

Have you ever seen Ralph Nader? He has about the most extreme case of lazy eye I have ever seen.
I think what you are seeing is varying degrees of lazy eye. Because, at some point the underused eye will
not blink in synch with the dominant eye.
It is probably because the seeing eye strains more and requires more frequent lubrication.
The lazy eye blinks independently, because it doesn't focus or need to clear as often.
I am familiar with eye cues that determine when a person is fabricating their thought versus remembering
something. It is a fascinating topic.
What might be more productive is to notice which eye has been allowed to become the dominant one.
