    Default see eye to eye

    I do not see eye to eye with you atleast on this point.

    I know (eye to eye means agree)


    But what is `see eye to eye' in this sentence.

    Please explain it.

    Well if "to see eye to eye" means "to agree," I would logically assume that "I do not see eye to eye with you at least on this point" would mean that I do not agree with you, specifically on this issue.
    Hope this helps.

    ... and the 'at least on this point' implies that they do agree on most other points.
