Default Questions about monitor settings

I have read a few posts talking about different monitors settings i.e. res, refresh and dpi etc. It seems that most people use high screen res like over 1000 and im just wondering how you guys can use such high res and still be able to comfortably read the screen? its crazy to me thats why i have to ask. i have normal 20/20 vision and it make everything soo small. Do most do it for gaming purposes only? or do you compensate for the low res by changing other things?
I use 800x600 with 99 dpi and 100 refresh rate

Talk to me people

my lcd is at 1024x768, and i have bad eyesight, but i can still read everything fine, and i'ts not a big screen either, it's only a 17 inch. i don't use anything to compensate, the text size for my browser is set to normal.
