Enlarging Pointer Size for Visually Impaired User

I am currently using a Raspberry pi 3 as a desktop for my dad who is visually impaired. So far it has been working well, but the pointer is much to small for him to see. I assume that there is some way to fix this, but I have been unable to find one. I am currently using Raspbian, but am open to switching if it would be easier to adjust the mouse size. Also, the simpler the fix the better because I am new to programming and to Raspberry pi's. Thank you!!
