LATEST: Soul supremo Stevie Wonder has confirmed claims micro chip technology may one day restore his sight, but insists it is still far in the future.

The EBONY AND IVORY hitmaker has visited a pioneering consultant in Baltimore, Maryland, but says the project is still in very early days.

He says, "There's nothing that's happening with my eyes as far as me being able to see. Someone is going to have to drive me for a while."
