Facial synkinesis

It's not easy to tell if you have this condition without a closer examination and/or video, but if indeed your right eye tends to close with jaw movements you have what is known among ophthalmologists as 'Marcus-Gunn jaw winking.' It is a harmless condition than requires no treatment.
