Question Headlight direction of beam

Can someone tell me, are the beams from headlights angled differently depending on whether a car was manufactured for driving on the left or right hand side of the road. Therefore can I buy headlights from a left-hand drive Mercedes and put them on my right hand drive vehicle without blinding oncoming traffic? My current headlights have less beam pointed towards oncoming traffic and more towards the roadside, faulty or is it normal?
