We thank Dr. Lorenzo Ferro Desideri et al. for their comments.
As we stated in our study, we performed a complete ophthalmological examination, including best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), ocular tonometry, slit-lamp, and fundus examination. However, as the measurements were in the normal range, they were not mentioned in the text.
And also we have determined the exclusion criteria as mentioned in the main text. The exclusion criteria were as follows: having comorbid diseases which can cause RLS or be confused with RLS like diabetes mellitus, polyneuropathy, lumbosacral radiculopathy, iron deficiency anemia, or thyroid dysfunctions (hypo- or hyperthyroidism). Also, patients who had ophthalmological problems like glaucoma, retinopathy or retinal surgical history, or macular degeneration were excluded from the study. Additionally, our patients and controls were nonsmokers.
