Their brains aren't complex enough to "see" 10,000 THINGS at once. But the compound eyes register hundreds of differing light and shade readings, from which the fly develops it's vision. But - YES - there are two eyes, which is the minimum needed to register 3D vision.

I don't know the exact answer to your question, but I would think it varies between species or family anyway.
