In brief: Difficult diagnosis

You should be examined by an Eye specialist (ophthalmologist) than an optometrist.
Only the former can do a detailed good examination to make such a rare diagnosis. I would not trust this diagnosis coming from an optometry office. Do not sit on it too long as there is some risk of melanoma in a situation like you are faced with.
