The predictions of relativistic Schrödinger theory (RST) for the relativistic effects in helium-like ions with high nuclear charge (-80) are elaborated in the electrostatic approximation (i.e. neglection of the magnetic interactions). The corresponding RST results are found to meet with the experimental data and with the predictions of other theoretical approaches, provided an estimate of the (neglected) magnetic effects is taken into account. This suggests to carry through high-precision calculations (including the magnetic forces) in order to further test the physical significance of RST.
