I use a MacBook Air running the same OS, and I have seen the same problem at times.  I can
usually fix it by increasing the magnification of the page onscreen by a small percentage.
This does not change the font size, just your view of it. 

Sometimes it is a font problem, when OpenOffice does not have the screen font installed. It
will use a similar font that may not display exactly right. For example, OOo uses Times New
Roman, not Times. You may need to install the screen font.
