i have some old glass lens glasses i use now and then i have the common plastic lens too

Yes, they do. When they get too bad, walk over to the sink and wash them... or keep a cleaning cloth in your pocket or a drawer somewhere.
This is like sharpening lathe tools. All lathe tools dull, the sooner you accept that and take the 15-30 seconds to maintain the tool the happier you'll be.
Air filters help a little, dust collection helps a lot, but your glasses eventually get dusty no matter what just from the dust in the air. Ever watched the Vashta Nerada in a light beam in the shop?

Plastic face shields not only attract dust like a magnet, but if left on there will "cloud" the plastic and impair visibility. And become almost impossible to wash off later. So keep them clean. Do not allow them to get dirty. I keep a bottle of rubbing alcohol on the shelf. I grab a paper towel and some alcohol and scrub. As long as the build up is not too great or left on there too long, it works just fine. This works well on goggles too.
Also, have a couple replacement face shields (and goggles) on the shelf ready to go. It just takes a minute to replace a dirty face shield with a clean one. And impaired visibility is a factor in accidents and injuries. Stay safe. Keep your face/eyes protected. Keep your protective eyewear clean. And replace when necessary. These are consumables. Stock them like you would sandpaper, saw blades, etc.

Be carefull of what you use to clean these sheilds. With some shields made from some plastics can be ruined with the wrong solvent.

keeping the dust off is the real problem
i found some goggles with a wide strap and a foam fit around the edges
they are not my first choice but will give them a try

not a problem to wipe off the dust
the problem is keeping it off in the first place
