    Default See at a glance

    I've been triying to find the meaning of see at a glance but I didn't find it. Could you tell me what does it means?

    Thank you.

    The meaning is literal.
    "I could see at a glance that she was sick."
    That is, I didn't have to look at her for very long to realise that she was sick. I only had to glance (take a quick look) at her.
