You can check the level somewhat by laying a straightedge perpendicularly across the blade and see if it's tilted at all.
I had a problem with uneven edges when I first started out, without knowing that was the problem. I went to a couple of places for sharpenings and it still never seemed right. Finally I got my skates in good hands and they fixed them. If you have uneven edges, a lazy sharpener won't even notice them and you'll continue to have issues. Once they are correct, it is heavenly.
I also agree that you should go 5/8". 7/16" is very hard to learn to stop on.
