Yes, ophthalmology uses the San Fransisco Match not the NRMP match, they have different dates etc.
I think the total positions are around 207 with 7 matched IMG (NRMP report 2014), the field is extremely competitive for the AMGs, IMAGINE how will it be for IMG's not to discourage you but to make you think accordingly, plus you need to apply also to the NRMP match for your prelim year.

You need only one requirement - strong personal connections usually acquired through years of research. Scores won't matter much. I know a girl who matched this year, her scores are in low 220s.
