Yes: Patients with toxoplasmosis can develop inflammation in the eye. Vitrifies is most common but an anterior iritis spillover can also be seen.

Unrelated: I am guessing your toxoplasmosis was contracted when you were very young and it is now quiescent; it does not cause iritis which is a separate issue.
