I'm actually using the vanilla stands on the side monitors, but they're being raised by PSVITA game cases underneath lol. They're slightly uneven though because they're different monitors so i'm going to invest in a monitor arm soon. the top monitor is using this: [link]
I'm also visually impaired and need to be really close to my monitor, and the arm mount works really well. I have one line this and mount it to the side of my desk. So I can pull it closer but have room under it for my keyboard.
Does he still need the larger font size if the monitor is close? In my case, I can see fairly small sizes if I look close enough, so I don't really need large fonts since I have the arm. But all text editors have the option to change the size, so it would really just be a matter of adjusting the size to a comfortable level.
EDIT: another thing to note about the arm, you should plan where you'll mount it before buying one. For me, my desk is solid on the side so there wasn't a good spot to clamp it on (so I had to carve out a hole in my desk).
I really enjoy the desktop set. Took a little to get use to but typing on it is amazing after a while. It's just really well built.
The arm is a Mount-It! Height Adjustable Articulating Single Arm Desk Mount Spring Arm Quick Release
I have one of these for my ultrawide and it works pretty good, besides the fact that the forwards tilt on it can barely support the monitor, I had to shove a little hex key wrench in the pivot point to prevent it from flopping forwards, though this may just be with the arm I got. I like this one over what OP suggests because it some easy height adjustment with a gas spring arm. It also offers a little further reach I believe, on my setup the mounting post sits beside the monitor
This is the closest I could find to the original
Actually the monitor mount just looks like that. I actually love it. Very sturdy and allows you to adjust the monitor up/down, front/back on-the-fly. Check it out if you're interested [link]
