What is a fiber optic receiver?

There are so many writings including Wikipedia articles about fiber optic receiver. In simple words, how would you define a fiber optic receiver?

A fiber optic receiver is an Opto-electronic device that receives incoming optical signals from an optical fiber and convert it to electrical signal. Hence a fiber optic receiver essentially contains a detector to detect the incoming optical signal, an interface circuit to produce electrical signals and low noise amplifier.
