English translation:by sight / visually / with the naked eye
Explanation:
From the Latin, literally by sight or visually. With the naked eye is a bit more emphatic if you want to make the distinction that instruments/machines aren´t involved. Here are some examples of its use:

Given the closeness of the chemical composition of the two species both Edenite and Pargasite are present and one cannot tell them apart visually. http://www.fabreminerals.com/search_results.php?LANG=EN&Mine...

Dado a la proximidad de la composición de la Edenita y la Pargasita las dos especies están presentes en esta pieza no siendo posible distinguir "a visu" una de la otra.
