Glasses Fixing

Why do opticians fix glasses for free?
I have gone in a few times to a random optician with my bent pair on glasses. They always say that if they break them tough, or words to that effect, and then bend them into shape of put the lense back in for free. In what other business can you walk into a random shop and get your product fixed? A mechanic who fixed the car of anyone who came along for free would go out of business pretty quickly. Why do opticians offer this free service? Is it done in all countries?

It's done in every country I've ever had to have it done.
Here, in Germany, they even clean them properly with some kind of cleaning machine.
