In brief: Little

These are terms used for the type of glaucoma that is caused by anatomical obstruction by the iris of the fluid outflow from the eye.
Both terms are commonly used. This causes an acute attack and this is an ophthalmological emergency. You should see your ophthalmologist immediately as treatment is very effective.

In brief: Spectrum

Narrow angle can predispose to eventually a closed angle (at risk situation).
