Opaque but clear

Is it possible to get mirrored sunglasses that are opaque to other people, but clear, or very low tint, to the wearer? I can't work out if this is possible! Special details inside.

I have a form of autism and find eye contact extremely uncomfortable. For some reason, this is particularly bothersome whilst driving. There's a lot of casual eye contact and I find it really unpleasant.
If my eyes are hidden, I'm fine, so dark glasses have solved the problem until now, but summer is coming to an end (at least in the UK) and I need an alternative that won't render me unable to see in low light. Up to a 25% light reduction is fine, according to UK/EU law, but I'd rather have 10% or less. Zero would be ideal! I am male but not particularly bothered about colour or style.
