Default Opthalmology for IMGs

I really want to do opthalmology in USA . But I have heard its really hard to get . I am still a student in final year but i recently presented a poster at an international confrence in opthalmology . After which i wrote in to a few professors who have offered me 6 months of research one in UCSD , the other in Oregon but i am confused if opthal is really hard should i take these up or not can this reseach work be helpful even in internal medicine . If yes then which of these intitutes would be better .?

optho is very very hard to get. even for amg very hard. it depends how bad you want to do it. if you are willing to wait you can get it maybe have to do 2 to 3 yrz research or post doc fellow program on top of 99 usmle scores on all exams. you can do observerships as well to make contacts but it is so hard to get optho. for internal medicine research is good but don't know about eye research
