In brief: Subjective

Objectively, eye alignment can be measured using cover testing.
It can be quantified with prism testing.

In brief: By your observation

Double vision is your perception of two objects in the view.
This is the reason why you might want to have an evaluation. There are many tests to measure the degree of doubling, what muscles are affected, and what treatment if any is possible.
