Prosopagnosia or face-blindness is a neurological condition that makes a person incapable of recognizing faces though it does not affect the person's ability to see faces. People with perfect vision can suffer from this condition. However, this is a socially debilitating disease and can make a person extremely self conscious and lead to a lack of self confidence. There is, as yet, no known cure for this condition.
