After Gloucester is blinded and says he couldnt "see" when he had physical sight, does he realize he can still see without eyes? 

After Gloucester's blinding, he says "I have no way, and therefore want no eyes; I stumbled when I saw." (4.1.18)

Here he realizes that when he had physical sight, he wasn't really seeing. 

Does he think he can see now, or does he still not know that people can see without physical eyes in their head?

Later, Lear says "A man may see how this world goes with no eyes. Look with thien ears" (4.6.146). Is Gloucester having another realization here?
