Lightroom Classic - adjustments to font size for visually impaired?

Does anyone know if the fonts can be made larger (and bolder) in Lightroom? I don't like to use reading glasses when I'm editing photos because it distorts my periphery. Lightroom would sure be easier to navigate if I could quickly read everything. Thanks!

You can adjust the font size in Preferences > Interface. There is no option to make fonts bolder.

Thank you so much for your reply. So, I actually already operate on the large setting, but that makes a very minimal difference in the font size as you can see below:

Also, my preferences menu looks a bit different...I only have two options: small and large. And like I said, not much of a difference between the two:

My version of Lighroom Classic is up to date as well. Any other ideas? Thanks again!

Are you sure you are up to date? Having only two options for font size indicates an older version.

Please go to Help > About Lightroom (might be in the Lightroom menu on a Mac) to verify what version you're running.

Momanders04 is on Mac, and Mac LR only provides Small and Large. If you're on a Retina display, you can adjust the text size of your entire Mac display without lowering the screen resolution used for photos -- go to System Preferences > Displays:

If you're on a non-Retina display, you can reduce the screen resolution, but that will reduce the resolution used for photos as well:
