Best circadian rhythm night time low-blue-light glasses?

I'd like to buy some of those glasses you wear at night to cut down on the blue light hitting special receptors in your eyes and preventing melatonin and possibly other important circadian hormonal cycles...

Any experience with these? What's the best brand/model to get? Hopefully there's something middle-low priced that's just as good as high-priced but I'm willing to pay what it takes if I'm not going to waste my time/$$ with multiple purchases.

There are a few out there, but Uvex Skypers are the only ones that have been clinically tested. And they're pretty cheap... $10 :)

From what I can tell they do work in general, I do feel more tired/relaxed when I wear them before bed but they don't seem to help my sleep. ( from what I can tell )

The ones I wear are the cheap uvex ones, they look horrible, don't wear them around people. That being said they work very well...if I'm looking at a pure blue LED with them on the LED will appear as if it's off. So I would imagine the only difference between cheap/expensive ones are aesthetics, I can't imagine them blocking out more blue light...as there is none left to block.
