Optical Mice Are Ergonomic Mice That Function Via An Accurate And Smooth LED Tracking System

Computer mice are an incredibly important part of your workstation setup and regular use of unsuitable mice can certainly cause fatigue and strain. This strain could eventually lead to long-term injuries such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) and Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI).

Optical mice are incredibly popular due to their ease of use, accuracy and lack of moving parts. They come in numerous designs and types across our ergonomic mice range, allowing you to work in comfort and safety.

What Are Optical Mice?

Our optical mice are ergonomically designed and use a camera in conjunction with an LED light to view and track the mouse's movements. The mouse emits light via its LED and the camera captures that light as it bounces back off the worksurface. The reflection data is used to position the mouse cursor and is highly accurate and smooth to use.

Why Buy An Optical Mouse?

Optical mice use an LED system to track and represent movement which makes them very accurate, smooth to use and far less prone to failure. Optical mice typically have lower sensitivity than laser mice, which allows for accurate moving without any jittering.

Optical mice tend to be competitively priced and will function on most work surfaces without the need for a mouse pad. This means you can use one directly on your desk or worksurface, as long as it is not too shiny.
