My step grandfather was blind from birth. I think he had a pretty good concept of the size, shape and dimensions of most objects based on touch.

I think if he miraculously were able to see one day, I think he would recognize most objects visually without having to touch them. A skinny cylindrical object on a table would be recognize as a pencil and not an automobile for example.
