What's the difference between Wide Angle and Wide Field?

In microscopy, the term wide field is often used to describe lenses that increase your field of view when looking through a microscope. I haven't heard the term used in photography, but have heard wide angle used frequently. Do they have the same meaning? If not, what's the difference? If the same, what's the reason for the different terminology.
