Note that you have to set the distance. You could convert it into a raycast that checks for collision in your scene.
In which case, you could make the depth 1, calculate the first point, then a very large number, calculate the second point. Then use those two points to cast your ray

To cast in the direction of the camera easily, with almost no performance impact, just do this.

Get the camera x, y and z position
Move camera local z by however far you want
Gets it's position again
Move it back to the original position and you have two perfect sets of ray cast coords
