In brief: Check vision
Determine best corrected vision, and eye exam looking for any abnormalities.
Hints such as anything unequal or severely depressed for both eyes helps to see if there is a limited weaker eye. Depending on the age, vision can be tested in different manners, i.e. Flash vep.

In brief: Careful refracton
Depends upon the age.
For an older child who can recognize letters or shapes it is generally pretty easy. For an infant or toddler we look for outwards signs of eye misalignment, unequal red reflexes and gaze preferences when each eye is alternately covered.
