Welcome to SOA


Welcome to the St John Ophthalmic Association (SOA). We are a group of ophthalmologists and allied healthcare professionals across the world who support the post-graduate activities of the St John Eye Hospital Group. The Association was formed to unite clinicians and nurses who have worked for the Hospital Group, or who are interested in its activities. In doing so, we support the principles of the Venerable Order of St John of Jerusalem, which include the Service of Humanity (‘Pro fide, pro utilitate hominum).  

In September 2018 the SOA hosts its first International meeting in Jerusalem. Working with regional and international partners, and with over 50 class-leading surgeons across the field of ophthalmology, we bring you ‘Ophthalmology the cutting edge’.
