1. An electrochromic mirror system comprising:

  • a mirror assembly containing a first transparent element and a second element spaced apart from said first transparent element, the side of said first transparent element confronting said second element having a layer of a transparent conductive material disposed thereon, and the side of said second element confronting said first element having a layer selected from the group consisting of a transparent conductive material and a reflective material disposed thereon, where, when said first element-confronting side is coated with said transparent conductive material, the side of said second element not confronting said first element has a layer of reflective material disposed thereon;

    an electrochromic media provided between said first and said second elements;

    a transparent seal having an optical transmission of over 50% surrounding and confining said electrochromic media between said first and said second elements; and

    where at least a portion of said seal is included in a visible reflective area of said mirror assembly, thereby increasing the field of view of said mirror system.
