C первого взгляда - at first sight

с первого взгляда - at first sight

Он влюбился в неё с первого взгляда.  = He fell in love with her at first sight.

Вы верите в любовь с первого взгляда? = Do you believe in love at first sight?

 

The expression comes from "первый" = first and "взгляд" = look, so it's very close to the English idiom.
