Anker via Amazon offers its Ergonomic Optical USB Wired Vertical Mouse for $10.49 shipped when you use code AKMOUSE4 at checkout. Normally $15, this is 30% off the going rate and the lowest available. I recently started using an ergonomic mouse at my main desk, and I can’t go back. It takes some time to adjust  but it’s well worth it in the end. I’m experiencing less wrist fatigue after a full 8-hour shift and it’s genuinely fun to see people’s reactions to it on my desk. Rated 4.2./5 stars from thousands.
