見れは見る - What does it mean?

Hello everyone!
I am here because I do have a question about the partial sentence above.
I recently vowed to get back into actively learning (and reading) Japanese and, after a move I found a note with said partial sentence (I think). Problem 1 is, I have no idea where it is from, it was just kinda between the pages of a notebook unrelated to Japanese. Problem 2 is: I have no idea what it means or what this construction is even called. Searching on google has been… less than helpful. I’m also pretty sure I saw it somewhere before and that I was once taught what it means but I can’t remember for the life of me what it was. My grammar books are currently not easily accessible and even if I could get them - I have no idea where to start searching except flipping through the pages.
I would be so happy if someone could point me in the right direction because it is driving me nuts right now.

Are you sure it’s not 見れば見る? :thinking:

It could be that you don’t remember it exactly.

The closest thing that comes to mind is
見れば見るほど… = the more I look at (something) the more…

I see this is your first post. Welcome to the community!

Also, sorry I have no idea. I’m still learning. :grinning:

Thanks for the reply!
It might be it. It wouldn’t be the first time I leave tenten or maru out by accident. I still could have sworn that I saw it without tenten somewhere else but unless I find it again…
