Important question that affects answer: do you want to be able to put this fixture back together afterwards? – gregmac Nov 5 '13 at 4:26

Try twisting the ring around glass part, or twisting the entire thing.

I suspect it's just the glass bit.

Since this was brought back to the top after a whole year I assume the OP has figured this out, but I gave this answer an upvote so it can be archived. This is correct. Typically these puck lights need a slight twist to remove the lens. Sometimes all you can use is your fingertips and it can be tricky. – Speedy Petey May 4 '14 at 12:05

Grab it and twist the hell out of it to the left OR a big hammer.
