The ribbon buttons are fixed size. No way to change them unless you want to
rewrite the ribbon with your own buttons. For more info on that, see

There is no setting in Word to change the sizes of buttons. The only
thing that will enlarge them is to reduce the screen resolution in
Windows, which will affect everything in all programs.

Or you can go to Control Panel and select the Accessibility options (XP)
or Ease of Access (Win 7). Each one has a magnifier option from what I
could see. There are also online utilities to magnify portions of the
screen.
