Will LASIK surgery prevent you from riding a roller coaster?

I heard that if you have LASIK surgery, you can no longer ride a rollercoaster, pilot an airplane, or even ride a car with the top down. The so-called reason is that the flap in your eye created by the laser might open up again or come loose in the event of high-G forces or gusts of wind. Is this really true? I love roller coasters but am thinking about getting LASIK myself and would love to know the true answer to this myth.
