There are several issues that may be causing this since blurry font problems can be caused by:
1) cables that aren't connected properly
2) older monitors
3) poor screen resolution settings

Also you may be using a font that is not designed for mac.  Can you please try to substitute the fonts of the presentation with a mac font?  Use the Home tab, Replace --> Replace Fonts command

A known issue is the retina display, so check these articles out too:

Updating your software also worked for some other Mac users I know that had the same issue.

Hope this helps!
