In Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith we can see that Anakin's eyes color turns yellow when he was on Mustafar. Dooku's eyes were always brown and Asajj Ventress often has blue eyes in The Clone Wars media, although she uses the Dark Side. Dooku not giving himself over to the Sith as much as Anakin, because he did kill/order others to kill several Jedi and other people in Episode II and The Clone Wars.

Are the color-changing eyes a sign that happens temporarily when someone first accepts the Dark Side?

Yes, Dark Side user's eyes can shift color temporarily - or even permanently? Palpatine is always seen with yellow eyes after the confrontation with Windu, if I recall correctly.

Anyway, according to Wookieepedia:

A dark side user's eyes would sometimes change color and burn yellow with a fiery red rim when rage and anger seethed inside them.

Why that happens is unknown and explored in this question.
