Opticians query - granny glasses

Time to renew my glasses. Last time I said I wanted purple frames & metal. The optician (or sales person - whoever sells them in the opticians) handed me a pair of frames. I said ok as they are indeed metal & purple.
When the glasses were made up (varifocal lens) I was quite surprised to see the lenses were much thicker than the frame. Is this normal? I didn't react or complain as I thought it was probably just me not knowing the lenses are so thick now I am advancing in years.
Do you think she should have known & advised me not to take these frames (the ones she recommended) & advised me to go for plastic instead or does this look normal?
I am intrigued to know what other people think before I go to order some new glasses & whether I should go to a different place this time.
