Eye movements and other gestures have different impact in different cultures. Constant eye contact in some parts of the world is understood as uncomfortable indication while in some regions it is taken as good indication of high confidence.

Repeated movement of eye from side to side while having conversation suggest that a person is thinking about something which is not the part of conversation. That person is not interested in a talk with you or in the case of confrontation, he is avoiding eye contact.
