In brief: It depends
Sometimes people's vision is so affected by overhanging lids (yes its a medical condition) or by being born with poor vision that these procedures are real boons to quality of life, which is important.
Anyone doing it for vanity is, well, doing it for vanity, which is it's own story.

Lasik and blepharoplasty are exceedingly safe surgeries. There is little risk involved when done properly.
Dr. Jay Bradley
Ophthalmology - LASIK Surgery
In brief: Eye health
Patients wish to preserve their youthful appearance so they consider lasik to minimize the need for glasses and lid surgery to reverse the effects of aging.
The risk on eye health is minimal in your examples. These are just examples of cosmetic surgery.
