Condensation in vacuum container

I'm building a lens and stupidly rinsed one component before putting the lens body together with epoxy glue. Now when I leave the lens in the sun the trace of water left in the vacuumed lens body turns into condensation and blurs out the vision. I've seen loads of forums suggesting using rice or silica to dry it out, will this work for me? Or will I need to drill a hole in the lens body to air it out again?

Wouldn't you have to drill a hole to put the silica/rice in as well?
