I want to get inexpensive prescription sunglasses by buying drug store frames and inserting real lenses. The eyeglass place says I need to buy ophthalmological frames (which they sell for $100 and up) because drugstore sunglasses are too cheap and not up to the job. Is this the real deal or are they scamming me?

I have been looking for years for a pair of eyeglass frames like the ones Harry Caray used to wear, or the type Larry David's TV father wears. You know, the thick black boxy "television sets" that seem to be worn by older types in the entertainment business. I've come up empty handed, even after asking several eyeframe dealers. I suppose I could just fly down to Boca Raton and ask a wearer in person, but does anyone have a a name or manufacturer or style for these type of classes?
