It helps to know what sort of optical sensor we are talking about here.
An image sensor, colour sensor, or light sensor.
the third one (the light sensor)

Hi guys,

Would you please help me with this question..
Q: The benefits of removal of dirt and grime around optical sensors?

I can say:
1/ If there is too much dust, it will break down and by keeping it clean the sensor will live longer.
2/ Higher sensitivity to light, and more reliable.
3/ If it damaged or broke down, it would probably cost you to replace your device or the whole system and to save your time as well.
4/ Ensuring high accuracy of data, and more efficient.

What else?

Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated..
