Eye of Agamotto

The Eye of Agamotto is the name commonly given to Doctor Strange’s Amulet, though the Eye actually resides within the amulet and is released from time to time.

The Eye of Agamotto is one of the three occult objects in Doctor Strange’s possession which are empowered by the mysterious extradimensional entity known as Agamotto, the other being the Amulet of Agamotto and the Orb of Agamotto.

The Amulet of Agamotto actually holds a second 'earlier version' of the same eye as this one.

At Doctor Strange’s command, the Eye opens and can radiate a blinding light of immeasurable mystic force. Under the brilliance of the so-called “all-revealing light,” Strange is able to see through disguises, past illusions, invoke images of the past, and track both corporeal and ethereal beings by their psychic or magical emissions. It has been said that “Dwellers in the Realms of Darkness cannot resist its gleaming, glistening beacon.” In many instances Strange has turned that beam on not only monsters and powerful characters in other dimensions (such as Nightmare), but on practitioners of the “black” arts as well.

The Eye enables Strange to more easily probe the minds of sentient beings. When used as such the amulet opens and releases a representation of a golden eye which affixes itself to its wielder’s forehead, allowing him to “see” into the mind he wishes to probe.
