Yes. Did you have something specific in mind?

Hello.
Maybe you should check out kmagnifier, kde's magnifier tool. You can also look what other kde accessibility tools out there. A good start is here.

Well, if you're not using KDE but gnome, you can also check out gnome-mag (link here). Or you can also look at this project. This second project is discontinued and is replaced by gnome-mag.
Or finally you can just set the default screen resolution to 800x600, so everything will be bigger.
