went over rough tracks now passenger side angel eyes out?

I went over some rough railroad tracks and my passenger side angel eyes went out. Is this something I can fix myself or should I schedule a visit to the dealer?

I'm not sure what model year car you have. If it is pre-LCI then the fix is replacement of the angle eye bulb. Replacement requires removal of the wheel and the inner fender well (front half) to get at the bulb. The bulb is in the lower oustside of the light housing under a small snap-off cover and has two Torx screws holding it in. The connector is just two spade plugs (nothing fancy) and just keep track of where the (brown) ground lug goes (center blade if I remember correctly). If it is post-LCI I'm not familiar with it. I think LCI cars use an LED light source for the angel eyes. Is your car still under warranty? It should be covered if it is.
