glass from phone is splitting

I have an iPhone 5s that i got back in 2016 after I graduated high school. About a week or two ago, the glass started lifting and now the glass looks like it is half way from coming completely off. I looked at super gluing it back on, but the top two corners have components in them where the glue would need to go based on a google search.

Are there any fixes that would work without prying the glass off?

Update (04/28/2018)

Here are some images for the phone incase it helps (forgot to add them).

PS. this phone will no longer be supported by apple this September, so I don't think Apple is going to replace it.

the glass is probably just coming the plastic back that is attached to it you could take the screen being careful not to snap the plastic back (that back its what is use for the sceen to stay on the housing)off and try to glue it. option 2 is to buy a new screen on ebay or amazon. option 3 put a case on it that covers the whole thing like an otter box.

without prying the glass off. Prying it off is extremely risky.

dont pry the glass off, use something like an isesamo tool to get between the housing and the frame of the screen at the bottom of the phone and lift up

I just found out we don't even have the screw driver to undo it. I can't really afford to replace any part of this phone without damaging it. I don't want to remove the glass, it still works, I am just trying to get it to stay on.

If your screen is factory screen you could take to a mobile shop who does refurbish screen to install a new glass

Use superglue, squirt some out onto a piece of waste plastic, get a SMALL screw driver or sim eject pin and dip it into the glue then dab small dots of glue under the very outer edges of the glass where it's comming away from the plastic frame, then press the glass down and hold for a minute or two until it's set. Just be careful not to over apply the glue.

No need to replace the screen.
