I have an Olloclip for my Iphone that takes really nice macro shots. It flips around and can be wide angle, macro, or zoom. Picture of my Nerite snail (never knew they had eyes!!!) taken with my phone and an Olloclip.

Like all other snails, ramshorns have eyes as well - one at the base of each of its two tentacles:
