    Heres some advice from a humble 3rd year student:

    1) Make up your mind. You've posted the same question in almost every residency forum on SDN (Derm, Ophtho, Rads, Rad Onc, etc).

    2) Learn how to spell OPHTHALMOLOGY (or look it up). You're a 3rd year Medicine resident, you're smart enough to do that.

    3) Ophtho is a competitive field. FMGs do land spots every year but they usually have exceptional stats/research. Obviously, doing research for a year will help. The question remains, is it enough to land you a spot with an 86 on Step 1?

    Since I'm still in med school, I'll defer that answer to the helpful residents/fellows on SDN...:)
