To provide a complementary (to admiral) toolbox that enables users to develop ophthalmology disease area datasets and endpoints.


To install the latest development version of the package directly from GitHub use the following code:

if (!requireNamespace("remotes", quietly = TRUE)) {
remotes::install_github("pharmaverse/admiralophtha", ref = "devel")


  • Build a toolbox of re-usable functions and utilities to create Ophthalmology-specific ADaM datasets in R in a modular manner.
  • All functions are created based upon the ADaM Implementation Guide and aim to facilitate the programming of ADaM dataset standards.

R Versions

Here’s a summary of our strategy for this package related to R versions:

  • R versions for developers and users will follow the same as admiral core package.
  • For development the devel branch of admiral core is used as a dependency. For releasing a new admiralophtha version it must run using the latest released admiral core version, i.e., main branch of admiral core.


We use the following for support and communications between user and developer community:

  • Slack - for informal discussions, Q&A and building our user community. If you don’t have access, use this link to join the pharmaverse Slack workspace
  • GitHub Issues - for direct feedback, enhancement requests or raising bugs
