Just as everybody has been saying, take a look at Plexus, that stuff does wonders. But first, you must remove all the excess paint from your lense.
If you get a bit of splatter or spray on your lense during a game, don't try to wipe it off with your glove, even if it has a microfiber pad on it. This will only smear the paint on your lense. Leave it be while on the field, but as soon as you get to the staging area, wash the spray off with some water.

Just make sure you get decent TP.

EXACTLY WHAT I WAS GOING TO SAY!
DO NOT use Windex or alcohol, they WILL weaken your lens and will become unsafe. The last thing you want is to get shot in the lens and have the ball shatter the lens and you lose one eye or both!!!!'
I use Lens cleaning spray that has anti fog built in when I'm out playing. After a day of play I usually use a soft towel and water, then use the anti-fog spray to finish it all up.

Ok, now, I try to use plexus, in my opinion it's the best b/c it's made for that purpose. For other things, I usually use water at my house when I can take the lens out. That's one thing I really appreciate, that my Proto can take the lens out quickly. For the outside, I can use paper towels, cotton cloth, or a big microfiber, but that is my last choice, since I only use that for the inside of my thermal. Since the Proto manual says that the inner lens scratches easily, I don't want to mess up the optical quality just because I was careless with what I wiped it with. I never wash it with water b/c that may prematurely separate the lenses.
I was recently at an event where I was lucky enough to place my stuff next to this kind man named Joe. For lens cleaning, he uses two small spray bottles, one with water, the other with diluted (I think) Johnsons (or Johnson & Johnsons) baby shampoo. It worked great. First the shampoo, then a little H2O, and wipe, clean! I was surprised. I might have to use that, as Plexus is pretty expensive.
