Can you buy just the headlight lens?

I hit a deer last night and it shattered my drivers headlight lens luckily no other body damage. I'm hoping I can just buy the lens and put it on but I'm not sure if I can buy just the lens. If anyone knows where please let me know.

Otherwise I'll go for C63 headlights which I wanted anyway.

Edit: Lens may be the wrong word, what ever the clear plastic cover is that covers the whole headlight.

LSA - the lens is not available separately. Aftermarket ones used to be manufactured for the W203 but they were of crap material & yellowed badly. There might be aftermarket for W204 but I would not use them. Toss the headlight/s.

Deers are problem where I live here in LI, NY, so much so they send out hunters to lower the population. I saw one run in front of the car in front me so luckily I slowed down, and all of sudden within 2 seconds one just sprinted right out in front of me, I slammed on the brakes and almost cleared him but his back leg clipped my drivers side. I was lucky, if I was going faster there would of been bad damage, my dad totaled his last car that way.

Unfortunately there is some further damage, the headlamp washer that pops out of the bumper is broken and sitting freely in there, and only I will ever know this but the gap between the grill and the hood and the hood and the fender are a little bigger on the drivers side. Only 1-4 CM in difference, so its very minimal and cant be seen unless you look very closely with a ruler, but it will still always bother me

I hopefully will get some C63 lights though so I'm happy about that, never seen a C300 with 63 lights, just painted housings, will post pics when its all done.

Got my C63 headlight in today, I was only able to find a drivers side for sale so right now I'm driving around with a black eyed C-class, if anyone has or knows of a passenger c63 headlight for sale at a reasonable price please let me know! I love the way the drivers side looks though, I still need to make some adjustments as there is a bigger gap between the light and the hood then the passenger side.

In the meantime, just blackout/paint your other headlight...

I've haven't loved the way it came out. The C63 headlights are not black on the inside but a graphite color. In the shade they look awesome because they look black, but in the light I don't love the graphite color, it almost looks silver and dull. I am thinking of opening them up, putting the chrome back and spraying just the surround black to make them look like this:
