Need a replacement mouse with magnifier

I currently use a Microsoft notebook optical mouse 3000 which is dying and I need to replace it. It is quite small and has a button on the side which activates a magnifier.

For various (mainly medical) reasons I can't use the windows magnification software nor a 'normal' size mouse.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a replacement mouse with magnifier? Wireless would also be useful.

Many thanks.

Try pressing ctrl and the + this will magnify your on screen text

mole1944: that only works with e.g. Chrome, doesn't it? For things like Word and Excel, you'd have to use the magnify slider?

If you are using Win7 then put the magnifier in the task bar and you can just click + or - to your requirements.
