Humidity Stuck in Drivers side Headlight

Hey guys was hoping i could get some help, i have some condensation stuck in the front drivers side headlight and i was wondering if there are any simple fixes for this. I was also wondering if this condensation can cause any damage to the headlight unit. I can provide pictures if anyone is interested.

You could try removing the bulb access cover and play in the air from a hairdryer for a few minutes. Should clear it.

Was the headlight assembly ever taken apart to install aftermarket angel eyes? If so, the previous owner may have cut the superglue that seals the lens to the rest of the headlight (instead of heating and prying it off) and re-glued it himself-- in such a case there is nothing you can do, as condensation will constantly seep into the headlight as a result of the poor seal. I saw this on a few cars when I was shopping around and avoided it like the plague, since my understanding is that you will need new headlights once somebody botches an angel eye install like that.
