What causes tinnitus with floaters in the eye?

I have been experiencing a ringing mostly in my left ear which has increased in loudness over the past 6 months or so. About a month ago, I suddenly started seeing a dark floater in my left eye which is mild but slightly annoying. Are the two things possibly related?
