"Mr. Weasley took Harry's glasses, gave them a tap of his wand and returned them, good as new."
—Arthur Weasley fixes Harry Potter's spectacles[src]

Oculus Reparo is the incantation of a variant of the Mending Charm, used to repair broken eyeglasses.

Known Practitioners

Etymology

A derivation from the repairing charm, with Latin oculus, meaning "eye", added as a prefix.

Behind the scenes

  • The use of this charm by Arthur Weasley has not been confirmed, as it may have been the general fixing spell.
  • Hermione Granger uses this in Diagon Alley despite being underage and hence not permitted to use magic outside of school but is in a controlled magical place.
  • In LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4, Ron tries to use this spell to fix Harry's glasses but instead turns a wizard's hat into a frog.
  • Although in the book, Mr Weasley taps Harry's glasses when using this spell, in the second film Hermione moves her wand in a similar manner to the "swish and flick" used for the Levitation Charm; this is seen often throughout the first two films.
