In brief: Type?

Depends on the procedure and risk level for your eye (coexisting problems, etc), sort it out with eyecare specialist.

In brief: Probably

If you go to e reputable surgeon and have reasonable numbers then yes it is very safe.
I would try to get word of mouth referrals and if during your consult you do not feel comfortable get a second opinion. I personally know several ophthalmologists that have had laser corrective surgery themselves.
