In brief: Eye exam

Check vision, look at your pupil reflex alignment with a penlight, check alignment with cover/uncover testing, sometimes maddox rod testing if you have one.
See if there is a refractive error or if the best corrected vision is limited.

In brief: An exam

The only way to determine the etiology of an eye problem is to have a complete exam by an ophthalmologist.
During this exam, the need for glasses is assessed as well as the eye alignment and the discovery of any other problems.
