I appreciate the advantage of stereo, which gives information as to how close the tools are to the work.  That could be important.  However, it's not necessary once you adapt to your tools.

 A fairly large part of the population gets along just
fine with mono vision.  Many choose it specifically
by getting contact lenses where one lens is near, and
one is far, or getting laser eye surgery to affect that

That said, I do very well with stereo vision, but can
work satisfactorily well with a mono vision camera.

The brain is adapted to use both stereo vision, and
perspective for determining distance.
