St John USA was incorporated in 1957 for the purpose of supporting St John Eye Hospital and was made a Priory in 1996, the American members remain deeply committed to this mission.

They encourage their members to visit the hospital on sponsored pilgrimages as well as carrying out fundraising activities, raising money for St John Eye Hospital. In addition, St John USA members who are ophthalmologists and surgeons donate their medical expertise at Hospital. Significant in-kind assistance in the form of supplies is frequently provided.

Recently St John USA Volunteer Corps programme has partnered with the Department of Veterans Affairs where members can volunteer in support of military veterans in activities like the wheelchair regatta.
