Have you considered choosing a different font? I have found that some fonts are very easy to read in 16 point but that others need something larger. Some require more leading. Here's a screen shot of my "Font Sampler." In every zone, the size and leading are the same. Some have more "built-in" leading.

I have found that a broader font that is proportionally short for its width is the easiest for me to read. Remember that you need a font that has a 'readable' italic (not too slanted) and a nice boldface (I prefer one that is not too in-your-face).
Here is a zipped file of the workspace. You can change fonts so you can see them side-by-side and determine which you like best.
