Welcome to the Ophthalmology task force for WikiProject Medicine. We are a group dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of ophthalmology, the field of medicine relating to the eye. If you would like to help, please inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list.

Project notice[edit]

The template for marking an article as part of the Ophthalmology task force is part of the WikiProject Medicine banner, {{WPMED}}. It can be inserted into an article's talkpage with:

{{WPMED |class= |importance= |ophthalmology=yes |ophthalmology-imp= }}

The first "importance" parameter is the subject's importance to the overall field of medicine, according to the guidelines here. The importance of a subject to the field of ophthalmology should be listed with the "ophthalmology-imp" parameter. The appearance of the template is as follows:
