pseudoexfoliation and cataract

I have pseudoexfoliation glaucoma(PXG).  Cataract surgery went badly on my left eye 11 years ago.  I now have little vision in that eye.  The disease in my right eye has progressed slowly (healthy optic nerve, no visual field loss, but some exfoliation).   Now I have a cataract that is interfering with my vision.  My ophtalmologist tells me it that cataract surgery on an eye with PXG is challenging.  Do any of you have experience with that?  Or a surgeon to recommend.
