How do I stop my eyeglasses from getting so dirty in the first place?

I read previous questions about cleaning glasses. What I want to know is this: is there any way to stop them from getting so dusty in the first place?
I wear my glasses every minute I'm awake, and keep them in a case at night. I wash them using either just warm water and a soft cloth, or some of that spray stuff they gave me when I bought them. I wash them several times a day, and yet they're dirty again within an hour -- even when I'm not going outside and my toddler isn't grabbing them. I've worn glasses for over 30 years, most with anti-glare coating like these ones, and I don't remember a pair ever being such a smudge-magnet.
Is there anything I can put on them to repel dust? (A nice coat of Pledge, perhaps?)
