If the other side's eyes are adjusted to the dark, they can see (even 30 year old) tritium sights from the rear or side at 100 yards plus. Usually, at defensive handgun ranges, 15 yards or less, the shooter can do as well with a plain isosceles stance. Tritium sights can also be so bright that the shooter, whose eyes have adjusted to the dark, is blinded and can't see the silhouette of the target. However, there are plenty of situations where precise shots can be made in the dark with tritium sights.

"Essential" no, but still very, very handy..

IF your adversary is behind you or to the side of you and can SEE your sights, you have made a GRAVE tactical error by allowing them to flank your position or sneak up behind you. And that's assuming your are even TRYING to aim your gun at them to engage the threat. As for the tritium sights being so bright as to give you night blindness then perhaps your need to go with a set of sights that don't require a nuclear reactor to power them. I've owned and used probably all the different brand night sights and under virtually every low light condition and even with the exceptional eyes I have I've never had to worry about being overpowered by night sights so IMHO you've brought up points that are non-starters at best and downright outlandish at worst. Buy YMMV.

Not necessary but It sure does make me feel good to crack my eyes open in the middle of the night and see those 3 dim lights on the nightstand... They tell me exactly where to reach for if needed.

I’d rather have a red dot or light/laser combo. If you buy a cheaper pistol or a trim level of a model without the night sights you have more money for a good optic or laser.
