           Now a days some cars have technology like the dimming of rearview mirror which help it to reduce the glare from headlight.  

Second thing you can shift the gaze, slightly shift the gaze for avoiding the direct lighting coming to the right side of the road.

2. Proper Alignment :  So alignment can cause this situation if the vehicles does not have the proper headlight fitting or alignment they might shine…

3. Headlight is not in good condition:  So there is a chance of getting some dust particles spread over the headlight or due to not regular cleaning some mist can spread. So regular clean the headlights and do it properly.

4. Upgradation: If you need just upgrade the headlight and keep looking for the best products like LED quality..
