Phoenix Suns forward Amar’e Stoudemire this afternoon underwent routine outpatient surgery on his right eye.

Commenting on the surgery, Suns’ team ophthalmologist Dr. Jay Schwartz said, “Amar’e today underwent a procedure that is a standard part of his continued recovery process.  It was a routine drainage of a small amount of residual fluid that was simply the next step.”

Stoudemire originally underwent surgery to repair a partially detached retina in his right eye on Feb. 20, 2009.
