In case it's not obvious to him, you can very easily change the font size on your browser. I'm using Chrome and it's Ctrl+ and Ctrl- to make it bigger or smaller.

Using a tablet could also be helpful, with its quick ability to zoom.

I don't know the nature of his blindness, but if this doesn't help him it may help another. I wrote this out because I found my dad was using a magnifying glass to look at the computer screen.

Best wishes to Backpacker Joe!!

I talked to him earlier this week and he mentioned an organization that assists the vision impaired was going to come out and do an assessment.  Hopefully they can offer some good recommendations to help with computer and other things.
