I am going to have my own frame so the only thing that I am basically getting is the lens. By the way I am nearsighted and my vision is about 500.

Even if you are supplying your own frames, it is hard to say a cost because there are several different types of lenses and several coatings & other options for the lenses, so the price varies widely. I would try Walmart first, they are pretty cheap and, at least at the place near where I live, they had no problem putting lenses in frames you bring in. This would be pretty convenient, since you probably wind up there anyway to shop, it wouldn't even require a special trip. Just take you frames and talk to the person in the optical dept, let them know what you want and see if they can give you an estimate. The price from Walmart will be about as cheap as you can get without going on-line.

There is an on-line place called that might be worth checking out as well.

Remember the frames must be suitable for real prescription lenses (no dollar store reading glasses or sunglasses frames, etc)
