Is this question being asked because you are using a 4K or other HiDPI screen?
Lowering the screen resolution on the vttys (only) is a convenient way to
enlarge the fonts, what I've been doing for two decades. Standard font on a 4K
screen is 1/4 the size of the same font on a 1920x1080 screen. video=1440x900
the kernel cmdline is my typical choice to get nice size vtty fonts. You can
the e key at the Grub menu to test different resolutions before configuring
permanently via YaST or /etc/default/grub.

Maybe changing the font can be done without rebooting the system? Just
asking, I don't know this instant how to change the VT font.
