I don't think any of them are necessary personally.
The Vit. K shot contains additives and is a lot of Vit. K for a small baby...it is given so that their blood with clot faster, and they won't bleed to death. The risks of this happening are about 1 in 10,000. The only way I would consider it is if the birth was traumatic(forceps/vacuum), or if I was planning to circumcise(which I would never do either).
The Hep B shot is totally unnecessary, unless you've been sleeping around or abusing drugs during pregnancy, and then you could pass it on to your child possibly. This is a disease that it mainly transmitted between people who are sexually promiscuous or those who use IV drugs. Mothers are routinely tested for Hep. B in the initial bloodwork anyways. Not needed!
The eye ointment is to prevent blindness, caused by certain STD's that could be passed on to baby during a vaginal birth. If you know you are free of these, you can also skip this.
