Drop temple glasses were quite popular between the mid 1970's and the mid 1980's and it's a great pity that they dropped out of sight afterwards. The style was especially chosen by ladies with fairly mild prescriptions. Opticians warned high myopic ladies about the lack of stability. The huge, airy frames of the mid 1970's were fitted with heavy glass lenses. My ex-wife used a beautiful giant pair of Piave glasses and her lenses (-6 / -7) were over a centimeter thick at the edges. High index lenses only started to appear when the drop temple style became unfashionable.
