So I was able to claim credit for General Biology Lab (BIO 206L at UT) through my research program (FRI) and so I never had to take the lab. However, it is a pre-requisite for the optometry application. Am I required to physically take the lab or does the credit count? I did a few experimental labs that related to general biology in my research lab in order for the program to say to university that the students are able to claim the biology lab credit.
Will the optometry schools actually look that deeply into this matter or just check off that I have the credit?

Every school is different. Your best bet is to call the schools you're interested in and ask! That's the only way to get the correct answer!

^Agreed! definitely don't just hope optometry schools won't look into it. You can email the admissions departments as well, if you can't get ahold of them via phone.
