It's by-far the most comfortable, ergonomic solution.
It still has the resolution of an optical sensor, but the surface scanned stays a lot cleaner since it's not a desk surface.
And, you need 1/4 the desk space since the mouse doesn't move, or need a mouse pad, or wrist rest. And the cable doesn't have to move in and out (if you've not gone wireless).

Here is what I like:

Don't look at the Gaming Mice, unless you need many user-programmable buttons, switches, etc. (Or want that cool Cobalt Blue LEDs inside)
I checked. Logitech doesn't seem to have a lefty version.

I might give that one a try. Most of my computing time is spent in my recliner and mousing can be a bit of a pain in the rear. One of those would simplify things.

There are several ambidextrous track-ball type mice, wireless.

One tip, I got a small wireless thumb-ball pistol-shaped mouse for travel with my laptop (before tablets), similar to
https://www.amazon.com/Wireless-Hand.../dp/B0057KL2AU
but smaller. I thought it would be convenient, but it was too small for my hands and I never used it.

That lesson learned is that you should always try it out, hands-on before you buy.
Look for the features you want on Amazon, BestBuy.com, NewEgg.com etc, then go to BestBuy or some other computer sales storefront and try it out to see if it's comfortable in your hands before you actually buy it.
