In brief: Probably not stress
Stress can increase the frequency of tics, which are longstanding occasional benign motor spasms, often of facial muscles.
However, if involuntary one-eye blinking is a new problem, and particularly if it is getting worse, it could be due to more serious nervous system conditions and should be evaluated by your primary care doctor or a neurologist.
