For small angles, magnification is defined as,

m= height of the image/height of the object

Why only for small angles, I thought this works for any angle? Is it an approximation.

I thought that height of image/height of object was the definition of magnification in the first place, how can it not apply for large angle or is this only when we're looking for magnification as it appears to our eye?
