In brief: Safe but risks exist

Your eye md (ophthalmologist) will screen you thoroughly to make sure you are a suitable candidate for eye surgery of this kind before consenting to perform it.
There are and will always be rare but significant risks involved anytime the body is cut into. Speak with your doctor about the specifics. If it helps, i got lasik done 4 years ago and i love it!
