New Media | olloclip iPhone Telephoto + Circular Polarizing lens system from ThinkGeek.com

There are a wide variety of add-on lens for your iPhone or other smartphone, but I have some direct experience with the olloclip products, so this post of the lens system at ThinkGeek.com caught my eye. These lens slide over the existing lens of your device and optically alter the focal range for macro/closeup photography, wide angle and fisheye photos. This kit also includes a polarizing filter which is often used on traditional cameras to cut glare and heighten the lighting of a photograph directly in the camera.

Make sure you get a lens unit for your specific device. Since they slip over the existing lens, they need to be designed with proper clearances and slip-on fit.
