In brief: No

Depth perception is a binocular function, meaning that with both eyes functioning you should not have depth perception problems.
Peripheral vision can be affected by certain things, most commonly glaucoma, but strokes can affect this. Both are usually not affected.

Peripheral vision is affected by things such as glaucoma, strokes and other rare retina entities.
Depth perception is a binocular function, meaning if both eye see well you depth perception should not be affected. To have both affected warrants an eye exam.
