Birda and humans(as well as all sighted mammals) are not as keen on spotting still objects unless they reflect unnaturally, but we are geared to spotting eye in any environment. So putting camo on lenses will likely not help much except for rain and snow protection if you do not also camo your eyes. Wearing non-reflective sun glasses would be more effective in evading detection than adding camouflage. Being still also is more effective than camo.
Erratic behavior or motions will perk up attention sooner than routine repetitive motions. Researchers in animal behavior and social groups find that by being just part of the background activity, going about their own tasks of writing. light housekeeping(camp cleaning) or grooming was more effective when trying to get close and not attract attention than stealth techniques. Someone/something waiting and watching generators more sense of threat than the same going about their business.
So if the other aids are taken care of, it can't hurt to add another even if it is not terrible effective on its own.
