   Light Impressions has silica gel dessicators for sale.
There are two forms: metal or plastic cases. Both can be
regenerated. See
   I spent some time looking for a bulk seller using Google
but found no sources for small amounts. Silica gel seems to
be used by those who dry flowers for a hobby, so hobby shops
may be a source. They also use cat litter for drying. I
don't know if that would work for lenses, its certainly easy
enough to find.
