are all lasik machines the same? or are there any new ones which is better than the previous ones? does it matter or its up to the doctor? what if there is a power failure during operation, what would happen?

No amount of technology can compensate for an inferior surgeon. The quality of the doctor is vastly more important than the tools that doctor uses.

The laser manufacturers are quick to express the superiority of their product over the competition, but the truth is that all lasers provide what is considered medically safe and effective results. Some lasers are better for some conditions than others. Some lasers are good for a wide range of parameters, but a good surgeon will know the limitations of his/her tools and techniques and will not compromise a patient's outcome.
