Look thru the lens. You will see nothing when looking thru it, and nothing will affect your image. Lenses are not made to be looked at by reflection. Back scatter from microscopic sleeks is only applicable in mirrors, and only in such applications as coronagraphs. You will find most mirrors will also not pass the "flashlight test".
