A growing body of evidence suggests that late dislocation of the capsular bag/intraocular lens (IOL) complex may occur in eyes with pseudoexfoliation several years after uneventful cataract surgery. This phenomenon has become more prevalent since the advent of capsulorhexis and complete encasement of the IOL in the capsular bag.

Given this issue, what would you suggest as the best cataract surgical method in a relatively young, healthy individual with signs of pseudoexfoliation?
