Default Do I have a chance in ophthalmology?

Hi to all,
I've been using this site to aid my USMLE prep but never posted before.

I got 242 in Step 1 and 252 in Step 2. I also did two ophto clerkships in Mass eye and Ear. This is my second year out of medical school (age 26)

I have yet to pass step 2 CK.
But given what I've already done. Do you think I have a chance of matching in an ophthalmology residency or should I pursue doing my residency in my country of origin.

There are statistics for other specialties all over the web, but the info about ophthalmology seems to be sparse .

Thank you!!!
