1. An electrochromic anti-glare mirror for electrically altering reflectance when connected to a power supply, said mirror comprising:

  • (a) a reflective film;

    (b) an electrochromic layer disposed on a front side of the reflective film, through which light reflected from the reflective film passes, and whose color changes due to the electrochromic layer being energized; and

    (c) a circuit board having a conductor with two ends, one end being connected to the electrochromic layer and the other end being for connection to a power supply, wherein said reflective film, said electrochromic layer and said circuit board are disposed in direct or indirect close contact with each other, wherein the electrochromic layer is formed by a pair of conductive films consisting of a front transparent conductive film and a rear conductive film, and an electrochromic film nipped between the pair of conductive films, wherein said reflective film is a part of the electrochromic layer, serving as said rear conductive film.
