It means that you should be evaluated by a rheumatologist for autoimmune disorder. Uveitis is an autoimmune disorder of the eyes. An ophthalmologist should treat you for the uveitis ASAP.

Uveitis and positive HLA B 27 are consistent with ankylosing spondylitis (AS) but musculoskeletal abnormalities, especially the spine pathology, are the main manifestations of AS.
