i thought optical and laser mouse is the same thing?
...nope alot of peeps think this...but optical mice use a red LED, which is in the visible light spectrum of electromagnetic waves. It's not a laser.
Laser mice don't use LEDs but a laser. Because lasers are more coherant, they have a higher precision.

Try cleaning the plastic LED lens and CMOS sensor on the underside of your mouse using a lightly damped cotton swab, to remove and residue or dust. Then use a dry cotton swab to remove dry it.
If you find it inaccessible on the underside, try unscrewing the mouse, lifting the printed circuit board then removing and cleaning the plastic lens, CMOS sensor and LED.
