Logitech makes one, but it is $130 CDN. This Anker one is $30. Anker is a brand I trust, they get good reviews and this mouse made it on a few "best mouse lists" I am giving it a try to see how well I can use it for photo editing. My wrist has been bugging me a lot lately do the change in angle can help. This is the mouse if you want to take a look. https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00FGI2QVC/ Note that on a Mac to get buttons 4 and 5 (forward and back usually) I had to install USB Overdrive mouse drivers.

I am left handed, and that was my other option. When I started with computers there were no mice, but when they came about you could not even switch buttons. I used them right handed. Then I switched and used them left handed, but I was always a little better with my right.

I should have got two of them, my work computer has a regular mouse and I switch back and forth all day.

Go on Amazon a search for left handed mice, they make vertical ones.

I'm pretty happy with the mac magic mouse but I don't use one often enough to cause me problems. I use the Wacom if I'm editing and I only use a computer for work for estimates and invoices.
