We may have found a solution: the Relaxis stimulation pad. We place the FDA-approved sleep aid (myrelaxis.com) beneath the calves of our restless-leg cataract patients, where it generates adjustable therapeutic vibrations that counteract the discomfort of RLS through distraction. The results from our recent Relaxis trial were impressive. Before admission, we identified 15 consecutive patients with RLS symptoms and administered Relaxis treatment beginning in pre-op. Of those, only 1 required intraoperative conver- sion to general anesthesia due to insufficient control of the leg move- ments.
