Amaré Stoudemire, fresh off surgery to repair a detached retina, says that he plans to wear goggles for the remainder of his NBA career.
"I'm wearing goggles from here on out," Stoudemire said. "It's funny I talked to my trainer when I was about to put those Oakley goggles down. I said, 'What are the odds of me getting poked in the eye again if I didn't wear these goggles?' "
Stoudemire, who had been poked in the eye numerous times over the last year, could have actually lost some sight had he not acted on the injury when he did.
"When I got hit by Boris Diaw in training camp, I couldn't see at all for the first three minutes," Stoudemire said. "I was more afraid then. With the retina, you can't quite tell until someone sees it. I caught it at a great time to where I saved my eyesight, and I've got a chance to get back here 200 percent soon.
"As long as I've got eye protection, I should be OK. Still play aggressive, explosive and active. That shouldn't change anything."
