How to get water out of lenses?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have a pair of Smith lenses that have water in between the pains.  It hasn't gone down for a day or so now.

Any ideas on how to get the water out without ruining the lenses?  I've heard to put it in a bag of rice, but I'd like to use them on Wednesday.  I've also heard the put them in the oven on its lowest setting for an hour or two.  Little skeptical of tossing a set of lenses in the oven. 

Any other ideas?  I've got them sitting on top of a dehumidifier right now, but it doesn't look like it is doing much.

replace the lens. If it got in there once it will again.

There is water in there because I washed the goggles as a whole and the water seeped out of the foam on the goggle and into the lense.  I've had them for several years and haven't had an issue with it in the thousands of miles of sledding they've been through.

you can trivially take the lenses out. just pop them out of the rubber. ive changed lenses many times even in a ski lift (i have a polarized and nonpolarized set)

The lenses are out of the frame and sitting on a dehumidifier right now.  The frames are completely dry.  inside the lenses is not.

I have some Smith goggle that I have washed that do the same thing.  The last time, I put them in a utility room at a high point on a shelf so air could flow through them.  My gas furnace is in the utility room, and when it runs, it probably gets 90 to 100 degrees on that shelf.  The water between the lenses evaporates and the goggles are fine.  I have never had the goggles get any moisture between the lenses while skiing, only if I wash the foam in some manner.  

Your dehumidifier idea should work too.

 I usually use a hair dryer on low..

If you fall in soft snow on the hill you can suck the snow and water out before it melts with you melts. Notice I said suck, blowing would do a would of damage on your moisture situation.
