In brief: Not much

Crossed eyes are the appearance that the world sees when looking at you.
Double vision is what you see when your eyes cross (each eye ends up looking at a different object, causing you to see two things ).

In brief: Same

Crossing the eyes can lead to double vision.
Double = see a split image or two of something.
