"Eels' Eyes can be used in all sorts of potions."
— Description[src]

Eels' eyes are the eyes of an eel.[1]


They were used in Potion-making. The Apothecary in Diagon Alley sold jars of eels' eyes for one Galleon each.[1]

According to a portrait of a medieval Healer at St Mungo's, one must stand naked in a barrel of eel's eyes at the full moon with a toad liver tied tightly about one's throat to cure Spattergroit; the legitimacy of this claim remains somewhat unconfirmed.[2]
