No ,mine cost me that or more.
If you have a high prescription and want nice frames and lenses that don't look huge then you need to get high index lenses and they cost a fortune.
Normal lenses are also uncomfortably heavy.
I have taken to buying my glasses and lenses in the UK vision2you.co.uk are really good.You need a valid prescription from an optician.
If you go in to specsavers or most big opticians you can view the glasses range that are free on PRSI and medical card.
