In brief: Continue the drops

This should be brought to the attention of whomever prescribed the steroid drops in the first place.
I would guess that you stopped the drops when the symptoms decreased rather than when the inflammation was gone. Get another look with your ophthalmologist to be sure on this.

In brief: Call the doctor

Call the ophthalmologist immediately.
If the uveitis is related to the arthritis, meds such as tnf agents may be extremely effective for both conditions.
