As of [update] mechanical mice had lower average power requirements than their optical counterparts; the power used by mice is relatively small, and only an important consideration when the power is derived from batteries , with their limited capacity. Manufacturers often engineer their optical mice—especially battery-powered wireless models—to save power when possible. Because optical mice render movement based on an image which the LED or infrared diode illuminates , use with multicolored mouse pads may result in unreliable performance; however, laser mice do not suffer these problems and will track on such surfaces. The laser illumination enables superior surface tracking compared to LED-illuminated optical mice. The amount that the edges of one photograph overhang the other represents the offset between the images, and in the case of an optical computer mouse the distance it has moved.

These surfaces, when lit at a grazing angle by a light emitting diode, cast distinct shadows that resemble a hilly terrain lit at sunset. Baumgartner, Thomas Hornak, Mark T. The first commercially available, modern optical computer mice were the Microsoft IntelliMouse with IntelliEye and IntelliMouse Explorer, introduced in using technology developed by Hewlett-Packard.

A simple binary-image version of digital image correlation was used in the Lyon optical mouse. However, they generally cannot track on glossy and transparent surfaces, including some mouse-pads, causing the cursor to drift unpredictably during operation.

The color of the optical mouse’s LEDs can vary, but red is most common, as red diodes are inexpensive and silicon photodetectors are very sensitive to red light. Examples of mice which sacrifice power-saving in favor of performance are the Logitech G5 and the Razer Copperhead.

Lyon of Xerox, used a pixel visible-light image sensor with integrated motion detection on opticzl same chip [6] [7] and tracked the motion of light dots in a dark field of a printed paper or similar mouse pad.
