Usually there's a screw at the top of the headlight mounting ring that needs to be screwed in to make the headlight aim higher, Park in front of your garage door to see where the headlights are shining and adjust the bulb until it is shining a little lower than the passenger side bulb because you don't want it to shine into oncoming traffic.

did it change suddenly? Cloudy/hazed lenses can affect aim , as well as improperly installed bulbs. BEFORE making unnecessary adjustments , I would check the others first.

Driver side should be slightly lower to avoid glare into oncoming traffic. some models Toyota may require access in front of fender liner with a 8mm adjustment. Otherwise, a phillips screwdriver will suffice
