Unfortunately yes. Frames are less, but the lenses can cost as much as the frames depending on the RX. My rx is ~-4 and -3.5 iirc, which was on the upper edge of what I could put in the whisker frame. I got polarized lenses w/iridium coating, I like the result as the vision is very crisp and surprisingly clear in a very wide range of lighting conditions - I have no issues in very bright sun or in shade, or when its overcast.
