I have this function:
create or replace FUNCTION isIndexExist(indexname IN VARCHAR2) RETURN  BOOLEAN
IS
i integer;
BEGIN
    select count(*)
    into i
	from user_indexes
	where upper(index_name)=trim(upper(indexname)); 
	if (i>=1) then
	   return TRUE;
	else
	  return FALSE;
	end if; 
END isIndexExist;

you might want to change it to add a schema as parameter ... (in my database, that was not needed)
