Tricks to see oil level on dipstick after fresh change?

I know my eyes aren't what they used to be....but really? Just did the first change on my 2013 1LE and cannot see the oil level on the dipstick accurately for anything. Drained, changed filter, sealed her up, added just under 8qt mobile 1, idled her for a minute, let it settle....then...crap, can't tell. Wiped clean and did it a few times and still can't tell. I've tried in different lights, angled it, and I'm baffled. Definitely oil on the stick, but level is anyone's guess. Any tricks out there?

I'd likely not worry excessively.....no I would anyway...but I'm heading to a driving event at Circuit if the Americas next weekend and will be pushing the car hard. Just concerned it my somehow be overfilled.
