If an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, what is an ounce of prevection worth?

Low relative humidity has been recommended. Also, for lenses in naturally damp locations, storing them above ambient temperature.

Place the affected element(s) under a strong UV light source for several hours. 24-48 hours in direct sunlight if you do not have a UV lamp.
