AKICILJ: Ambervue Sunglasses

I need new sunglasses; the frames on the ones I mostly wear are falling apart beyond the limits of my kludging together with superglue and bits of paper clips.  I don't want to pay a lot of money, because when I was younger, the mean lifetime for a pair of sunglasses was a couple of weeks before I either sat on them or lost them, and although I haven't had this problem lately, I'm sure it would come back right away as soon as I bought an expensive pair.  I've been quite happy with my "as seen on TV" Ambervue glasses, but I have not seen them available for sale in a bricks-and-mortar store for years.

Googling on "ambervue sunglasses" found 3,570 hits.  There are plenty of on-line shops I can order from.  But none that I've heard of.  If anyone I know happened to look at those Google results and say "hey, I've bought stuff from site X that's selling them and they gave me good service", I'd be happier than just trying a place at random.  If anyone can find a good quantity discount, I'd be happy to buy several pairs in the hopes of not having this problem again for a long time, and I'll owe you a beer.

In a related question, I had my eyes checked a few weeks ago, and they said that I actually could benefit a wee bit from corrective lenses.  (I've never worn glasses, and I can function just fine without them.)  It occurs to me that I might be able to kill two birds with one stone if I actually got corrective lenses that were also good sunglasses.  And I've heard that there are places on-line where you can get good prescription glasses for much less than they'd cost at the local optician -- maybe even down to a price a paranoid cheapskate would be willing to pay.  Any suggestions, or am I hoping for too much here?
