Read SFP+ eeprom data from command line

I am working on a project where we are trying read the eeprom of the SFPs plugged into the server. We are using Mellanox Connect2-EN and have not been able to do that. Using the following commands provide the NIC card information but not the SFP.

sudo lshw -class network
lspci -vvvnn

also Ethtool -e eth3 states:

Cannot get EEPROM data: Operation not supported

Has anyone been successful at retrieving the eeprom data from SFPs plugged into a 10Gig NIC?

I am not tied to Mellanox if it just is not supported by them. If there is a 10 GigE NIC that is known to work, can someone provide the vendor and part number?
