Crystals?

So I had a yearly appointment with a new eye doctor because my insurance changed.  I haven't had the same eye doctor for consecutive years so I don't know if I should contact my last eye doctor to see if he noticed anything this new optometrist noticed.  I just have a few questions. That of course I didn't think to ask until now.
   I have hazel eyes and here recently I noticed the whole outer rim of my coloring has turned a dark blue.  My optometrist examined my eyes for a long time.  He told me I have an enlarged nerve in my left eye. That no other eye doctor has ever told me about.  He said I was probably born with it, but wouldn't another eye doctor have said something about it?
  Also, my optometrist told me that I have blue crystals on my eyes, I also have a sunspot on my right eye ( don't know how because I am so pale)..He said that the "blue crystals" don't  effect my vision just causes a pretty color.  I have started to get serious light sensitivity to the sun and difficulty wearing contacts especially in my left eye where he said I had an enlarged nerve.  What if anything are these "blue crystals"?
    Should I be worried or get another professional opinion?

I do not know what he meant by "blue crystals".  I would see an ophthalmologist for a comprehensive exam.  Any prior eye exam records which you could bring to the ophthalmologist would be helpful.
