とみえる can be written in kana or in kanji as と見える.

Luck seems to be on his side.
In the joining form, とみえる becomes とみえて:

かぜ
つよ
かった
みえて
にわ
ぜんぶ
全部
ちている

It seems that last night the wind was strong, as all the leaves on the trees in the garden have fallen.
This form is identical to にみえる.
Note that 見える can also be the potential form of 見る (see), meaning 'can see', and sometimes it can be difficult to distinguish:
きょう
今日
ふじさん
富士山
はっきり
える

We can see Mt. Fuji clearly today.
