2018 Honda CR-V - Oil reading

This isn’t so much a question as a request to vehicle manufacturers. Lately, I’ve been finding it very difficult to read oil levels on dipsticks, unless the oil is very dirty – but I change it before it gets dirty. Any tricks to better read dipstick levels?

I hold the stick family horizontal and rotate it slightly, I can usually see the level.
