Exactly. Don't confuse fiber optic technology with tritium, the necessary self-illuminating isotope of hydrogen from which true night sights are made.
If you desire higher visibility sights that also have tritium for low-light situations, look into Truglow's TFO products. I have a set on my EDC XD-40 and find them to be excellent, and they're no more expensive than traditional tritium sights.
