Interesting question, not one I see every day. Do I see dust floating around in the air right now? No. Have I seen it before? Yes. When the sun shines thru the window in the living room, especially.
Also, when I dust the furniture and electronics with this duster I have that looks like a mop on a small, blue plastic handle.

This is a rather random and quirky question.
How on earth does it pertain to ASD?

Yes, I do. Not only do I notice it, I am completely distracted by it at times. I can't concentrate when the particles are floating around in front of me. It drives me insane!

Dust floating in the air doesnt make me distracted. I mean my place is kind of messy. I still have stuff in the moddle of my floor wehn i went out shopping the other day. I just emptied my bags in the middle of the floor. It is easiest to find stuff that way.

It applies to AS as some of us have 'floaters' inside our eyes. These are semi-solid thigies floating around inside our eyes that we can see sometimes, and look like dusty things floating around.

Only in front of the light.

Floaters though, I have them all the time.

But floaters isn't an AS thing either. They're really common, especially as you get older.

I donīt know if I really see dust floating around the air. But I do get this thing sometimes- but not always- where I feel like I can see the air moving, or like I see things divided into little different particles. Is that like a "floater"? Never heard of it before, Iīm not sure what that is.

I'd say sometimes, and some dust can be distracting.

In bright light... or sometimes when I am thinking and staring out into space and a piece of dust passes my eyes suddenly getting my attention. Floaters are a constant.
