Maybe they have changed, but that is what I was told when taking optics classes in graduate school.  That was over twenty years ago now, though.  I still don't use them on optics, you can do what you want.

Kimwipes should be fine to clean lenses, as long as there is no grit or hard dirt on the lens surface. 


.....and that's the problem.  Kimwipes apparently do have grit that is used in their manufacture (diatomaceous earth) and should never be used on lenses.  You should really use lens paper, if possible, but if not, something soft that is clean and without grit will work.  We have Kimwipes in the lab, but we also purchase lens paper for use on optics, even though it is more expensive it is better for the lenses.
