Sometimes one eye is more susceptible for a reason that's not obvious. For me it's my left eye (although the right is drier). Always has been.

I think my suggestion in your situation would be something that vaults the eye area but isn't completely airtight (i.e. no swim goggles). I know when your lid doesn't close that the best solution is to maximize protection including (ideally) something that holds the lids down but it's not always possible. I've corresponded with a surprising number of people who found Onyix/Quartz type shields perfectly adequate even though their lids don't close. - Or just treat your left eye a little differently... for example if you're currently using Tranquileyes, leave out the moisture pad on the left eye for a couple of days (or trim it down so it's a lot skinnier and holds moisture at the back of the goggle without touching your eye area... though if there's risk of infection I think a dry approach is probably safer). Or use plastic wrap on the right but not the left.
