Anyone else use LowBlueLights fitover glasses? Is there supposed to be a gap on top?

I bought the LowBlueLights fitover glasses in the smaller size, and they fit very comfortably (they don't feel small at all) but they have a HUGE gap on the top which lets in a lot of light.

I have attached a picture below: Front view

As far as I can see, the widest point on my actual glasses that prevents the LowBlueLights glasses from going in any further is the very edge of my frames, which I have circled in the picture below. My glasses seem to fit entirely within the frames comfortably but hit the lens at that point. Side view

Does anyone else have these glasses in a fitover model, and do they find the top has as big a gap, or is this something I should be contacting the company about?

Sorry for the silly question; it just seems like they wouldn't work all that well if that much light could come in the top. But... they charge 10 dollars for shipping, so sending them back and getting a new pair that might ALSO not work would cost me another 10-15 dollars. @_@

I only wanted these glasses because although I live in the basement and can control my own lighting down there, my family is not really in the "avoiding blue light" camp and have a tendency to have fluorescents and the TV going on upstairs. I figured this would be my best bet on "navigating the war zone" if I need to go upstairs for something. But putting on these glasses without my prescription glasses on underneath is impossible, since I'm practically blind as a bat!!!

I am working on patents so I can't say too much. But there are two additional variables that are perhaps just as important as blocking the blue light spectrum.

I don't know, those things are way over priced, there are others on amazon you could get for around $10. I don't see any reason to spend $80 + shipping on a bunch of amber plastic. For that money I can buy several orange "Party Bulbs" from the hardware store meant to be used for Thanksgiving/Holloween AND orange safety goggles that you can fit over glasses, so I'd get far more bang for the bucks.

Just wanted to followup and see how things are going with the glasses. Do you notice any difference?

I am developing a line of circadian reset glasses. These guys here only address part of the puzzle.

Well, I'm of the opinion that's it's not the light entering your eyes, it's the photoactive chemicals on your skin that "sense" the blue light, so I always say that any glasses do nothing.

But there is another camp that says that it's the light entering your eyes. They may be right, I haven't done enough research to know. But if they are right, you then need to worry about the light the makes it to the retina. The light sneaking in from the top of the glasses that gets focused in the back of your eye is very very small compared to all of the other light, so I wouldn't worry about the fact that some is getting in from the top.
