The Eye of Ender is an item crafted from 1 Ender Pearl and 1 Blaze Powder. Eyes of Ender can then be used to find a Stronghold; when you use it with one in your hand, it flies toward the nearest Stronghold for around 3 - 5 seconds, then it drops as an item, and can be recovered.

When in the Stronghold's End Portal room, 12 Eyes of Ender are necessary to activate the End Portal to reach The End
