possible problem

I was looking at one of my lens and there are several little drops of water inside of it. I was wondering what can be done ? is there any way short of taking the lens apart that you can dry the water? what will happen if i try to let it dry naturally? or should I right the lens off? and I have no idea how water got into it has not be outside in the rain except for a brief second and even then undercover when i took a pic

I just put it in a zip lock back with a couple of desicant (sp) packs maybe this will help it dry the moisture up a little?

I have a dry box I store my lenses in.

It's a big plastic box and lid with a load of silica gel packs in and it works really well.

So yes any sealed container and some silica gel should do it.
