    Terry:

    Some people believe that there is a slight difference.

    "Seeing is believing" may refer to an actual experience at the time:

    Tom: Look! Is that Joe kissing Mona?
    Alice: I can't believe it.
    Tom: Well, seeing is believing, isn't it! (We are seeing it, aren't we?)

    "To see is to believe" may refer to the idea in general.

     

    They both have the same meaning
