theonliest, there are all sorts of vision issues to consider in regards to fonts and font sizes and colour combinations. You also have to think about people with low vision, differing degrees of loss of sight, people with no peripheral vision who can only see a small pinpoint of the screen at a time and people with only peripheral vision. Many users will use screen magnification software, or will use a screen reader alongside their browser or screen magnifier in order to help them. So you do have to account for assistive technologies and people with varying degrees of sight. Also people with colourblindness, or cognitive issues. People with ADHD, dyslexia or memory issues may want larger fonts and a screen reader to help them focus on what they're reading, it really does depend on the person and what works best for them. Accessibility is not just about people who are blind.
