It is safe?
General aviation is a safe mode of transportation. Since 1950, the general aviation accident rate has been cut by more than 93%. Pilots are held to strict standards, while aircraft undergo mandatory maintenance and inspections at regular intervals.
Do I need naturally perfect vision?
No. As long as your vision is correctable (either by glasses or contact lenses) to 20/20 for distant vision and 20/40 for near & intermediate vision and you are not color-blind, you can meet the FAA medical requirements.
