Incisions a bit high, but likely will be ok.
The good news is you have a fair complexion, and the skin edges appear to be closed well, and most likely these scars will heal and be imperceptible or barely noticeable. The healing will occur with time and it may take 6-12 months to heal completely. After a few months, if visible, you could have various laser treatments such as fractional CO2 or fractional 1540 or Focused Lens Picosure.

Way Too High
Your blepharoplasty incisons look a little high.

Blepharoplasty incisions tend to heal fantastically well. This means they fade and are extremely difficult to see. Even if placed poorly, they tend to fade and be totally inconspicuous.
In the worst case scenario, if it looks this way after healing has finished, revision could be done. The small amount of skin above the crease and below the incision could be snipped out. This would probably do the trick. It would most likely be easy and successful.
I realize it's frustrating, but give it time.
I expect it will all heal well.

Are my incicisons too high?
The appearance of your upper eye lid incisions may improve with time.
Your red, partially visible incisions will lighten and become less evident with time. You may have a degree of ptosis (eyelid droopiness) that may be due to swelling, or may have been present preoperatively.
You should discuss your concerns with your surgeon or consider getting a second opinion. Worrying is never helpful.
Hope this helps you.
