Patient Care Philosophy
I believe that patient understanding is key to a successful, ongoing, long-term patient-physician relationship.
Dr. Kinyoun lives in Shoreline, Washington, with his wife. He has two grown children. He enjoys sporting activities (e.g., basketball and football), as well as, exercising outdoors (e.g., hiking, running, and snowshoeing) with his family. He relishes the endless, ever-changing, visually stimulating beauty of the Pacific Northwest whether he's watching the sun set behind the Olympic Mountains or the rain move across the Puget Sound.
Retinal detachment, proliferative diabetic retinopathy, diabetic macular edema, vitreous hemorrhage, numerous other macular abnormalities, including age-related macular degeneration and epimacular membranes, eye-trauma and radiation retinopathy.
Increasing understanding of diabetic retinopathy and its treatments, and elimination of vision loss due to complications of diabetes mellitus is a life-long goal. He has participated in national collaborative studies over the past 30 years which have shown that good blood sugar control as well as laser photocoagulation are excellent treatments which decrease vision loss due to diabetic retinopathy. A complication of prior radiation treatment around the eyes, radiation retinopathy, has similar eye findings as those found in diabetic retinopathy. Dr. Kinyoun has found that the beneficial effects of laser photocoagulation for diabetic retinopathy may also be beneficial for radiation retinopathy.
