HLA-B27 and iritis

I am doing research on ancestral patterns using y-DNA and have come to the conclusion that I have a close genetic connection to ashkenazi populations in Germany, where our family came from a long time ago (over 1000 years).

I suffer from persistant Iritis and would like to know if this is testable with the HLA-B27 test and whether Iritis is a known "Jewish disease"?
