Optical Mouse and Laser Mouse are two types of mice. A mouse generally, is used as an input device, and it is used by moving it over a pad or any flat surface to produce a corresponding movement of a pointer on a graphical display. However, there are some differences between the two types of mice; optical Mouse and laser mouse. Optical mice are equipped with a light that is emitted from diode. Laser mice, on the other hand, get its light source from the high-intensity laser.
Due to the nature of the light-optical mice are equipped with, they are not as sensitive like laser mice. Laser mice are so susceptible that they can detect over 2000 dots per inch. Optical mice cannot be placed on every surface, especially shining or black surfaces. Laser mice, on the other hand, can be placed on any surface and it will work correctly because of the nature and the intensity of light they use
