In brief: Glaucoma

The angle is defined by the cornea and the iris.
If the angle is narrow, there is less space for aqueous fluid to leave the eye through an area called the trabecular meshwork. A closed angle is completely blocked from aqueous egress. The treatment for this is a simple laser procedure. Contact your ophthalmologist if you are concerned about this condition.
