Try Checking the Zoom level . If its set to 100 % or more than that . IT should be more than 100 % thats is why its causing this problem to you

Did you check font size
  1. Open Chrome.
  2. At the top right, click More More and then Settings.
  3. At the bottom, click Show advanced settings.
  4. Under "Web Content," make the changes you want:
  5. Change font size: Next to "Font size," click the Down arrow Down Arrow. Then select the font size you want. You can also change more font options by clicking Customize fonts.

I will set it to 100% zoom and try it out for a day and see if that helps. But I have set as 110% bc I can see very well small text . Is there no other fix for that?
