I hope you can take a few minutes to enjoy this conversation on Stereo-vision, aired on NPR. This is an interview with "Stereo Sue" Barry.
If you are short on time, please see the link for a couple of vignettes on Sue's experiences before and after developing stereoscopic vision. She writes with a scientist's perspective, with decades of research in vision and neuroscience coloring her keen observations.

In the interview, Sue engages the listener to journey with her. She observes that seeing without stereo, "space is very compacted"-- she was unable to appreciate pockets of space between objects.
Sue comes to a realization that when she gained stereo vision, she also gained the language to describe her experiences. Prior to this, she knew no other way to see. There is a great difference between cognitively understanding that the world is 3-D, and *experiencing* the depth visually, simultaneously, firsthand.
