Expert Answer:

Transparent objects allow the light to pass through them.
Example: spectacles, eyelens.
Mirror is an object that reflects light. Thus when we look into the mirror we see our reflection inside the mirror.
Thus spectacles does not reflect light and we cannot see ourselves in tranparent objects.
