I'm using Macbook pro 15" and the resolution is 1680*1050. In this resolution, characters are too small for me. If I decrease the resolution to 1380*840, the character sizes are good for me. Instead, I can clearly see the low quality of graphics.

Can I use high resolution while maintaining the size? I know that I can increase only font sizes in a web browser, but I'm wondering if I can get the same size in high resolution as large as when I'm in lower resolution.

There's no built in systemwide means of adjusting the font scaling, short of running at a lower than native Resolution. You can use the zoom tool to zoom in on a "portion" of the screen, or you can try tinkertool, which will let you change the font sizes but only for native Mac apps.
