I was using Elmer's school glue for a long time, but I tried Micro Kristal Klear.  Kristal Klear is by far my new favorite.

I have switched to those UV hardening glues for transparent materials.  They will not craze windows like CA and sovents, yet are stronger than white glue type.  They come with a UV or blue lazer or LED, so you have lots of working time to position everything just right, and then a few seconds blast with the light hardens it.
