Is topoguided LASIK safer than traditional Lasik?

All LASIK, regardless of the brand of laser used, is equally safe in terms of risks. The different sub-types of LASIK (such as topo-guided, wavefront-driven, etc.) will vary slightly only in terms of optical efficiency -how perfectly the treated cornea can focus an image. So safety is not really the "superior feature" of topo-guided or wavefront-driven LASIK.
