Unlikely : Dysphagia is a broad term, can be due to several causes, could be due to an auto-immune process too, but not related the posterior uveitis that you had before and resolved. You want to keep the follow up with your primary doctor, specialist input as a gastroenterologist/ rheumatologist, may be needed if symptoms recur or persist, good luck
