Your eyes deserve the best care and attention

At Ballantine Goldie we use the latest technology to provide you with a detailed and comprehensive eye examination. We allow at least 45 minutes for your initial consultation. This gives us the time to get to know you, and your eyes.

Geoffrey Ballantine

Geoffrey was previously Managing Director of Black and Lizars and is the great, great grandson of John Lizars. Following the sale of Black and Lizars in 2008, Geoffrey opened two new practices – in Davidson’s Mains, Edinburgh and in Gullane. With the launch of Ballantine Goldie, Geoffrey now has the opportunity to provide the level of service on which his former family business was founded.

Tracy Goldie

Before starting Ballantine Goldie with Geoffrey, Tracy worked for Black and Lizars in both the Shandwick Place and George Street branches. Tracy cares passionately about her patients, and has gained a strong reputation for delivering a very high standard of service, combining her skills and experience with an outstanding attention to detail. Like Geoffrey, Tracy believes in a more personal approach that lets patients access all the advantages of the latest technology, while being treated with care and consideration.

We look forward to welcoming you
