I have a question that has the right answer, but it's not very detailed:

How do Optical/Laser Mice work?

I'm at a dilemma here, I want to give the answerer the rep that he deserves as he is correct, but I feel that I'd be adding a LOT of content to his answer with my edit. But if I added my own answer, I potentially take away from rep that he may have collected. What do I do in these type of situations?

Note: I'm not going to be adding any novel new content, meaning the answers will be the same, but the amount of detail will be enlarged.

If you feel that your answer deserves a separate answer than editing the existing answer, by all means do post the answer. As for giving the answerer his rep, you could add a bounty.

If you do not change the intent of the answer and solely add more detail then you could just do it.
