The paper describes the design and technical parameters of a medical thermoelectric device developed for diagnosing and monitoring the ophthalmic diseases. The main elements of the device are a specially designed thermoelectric heat flux sensor and a thermocouple temperature sensor connected to a data acquisition unit. The sensor is a thermoelectric micro-module that converts the heat flux into an electric voltage, which is recorded by the measuring channel of the data acquisition unit. The device allows high-precision measurements of both heat flux and temperature from the ocular surface. The paper contains examples of clinical piloting of the device.
