    My office just switched over to using macs. One of my co-workers has really bad eye sight and he's complaining that he's having a hard time seeing the font on his imac.

    Do you guys have any suggestions on how to remedy the situation.

    I'm thinking changing the resolution to 800X600 is prolly the only thing that'll make this guy happy.

    Perhaps, there's some settings that can help there.

    I'd just change his screen resolution. If you want to explore another avenue, you could teach him to use the accessibility tools. There is a really near zoom feature in there that he might find useful. It is located in system preferences and can be set up for key combinations.
