  • Blood Moons and new moons are useful for collecting these, as Demon Eyes spawn more frequently. A common strategy is to make a tunnel under a block of material and then cover these blocks in enough lava to kill Demon Eyes, but not enough to burn the drops (a Copper Coin can be used to test for the correct depth). Water Candles and Battle Potions will further increase the spawn of Demon Eyes.
  • A total of only 3 Black Lenses are needed to obtain all related items.
  • Although the Dilated Eye variant appears to have a large, black pupil, its drop rate for Black Lenses are not guaranteed nor raised. All variants of the Demon Eye have a 1*1/100 (1%) drop chance.
